Fox Entertainment: A Hare-raising Venture

  • Jun 13, 2016 at 12:00AM updated Jun 14, 2016 at 12:09PM

Why do people come to San Juan Island? I'm talking about tourists here. It turns out that our wild things lure some folks to cross oceans and boundaries so they can sit in rabbit pellets hours on end, entertained by real world drama—as in 'fox stalking rabbit.' And then there is the feverish shooting of playful kits romping on the prairie … just photos nowadays. I get it. My own photo gallery bulges with foxes, eagles, whales, harbor seals, otters, nursing fawns, a majestic buck, along with at least a hundred bird species. There are also some family pictures – although those creatures are truly moving targets.

Juliette’s new home

  • Jun 23, 2016 at 1:30AM

Several months ago the animal shelter received a call from a dog rescue group in Bellingham, asking if they could take in a shy Papillion dog in desperate need of a home. They explained that Juliette had been rescued from a less-than-reputable dog breeder who had kept her in an outdoor pen, on a cold concrete floor with no bedding for over six years; using her to produce litter after litter of puppies.
