To the Editor,
What kind of person would abandon or abuse a pet? Why would such a person have a pet to begin with? The recent Journal article, "A Cause for Paws," by Lynne Farmer appeared at about the same time someone abandoned two young black labs in the Big Woods. The dogs are friendly, but cower when approached, which leads us to believe they've been abused. I join Dixie Aug of Preston and other concerned citizens in believing it's time for Fillmore County to have an animal shelter. But we don't have a shelter yet and the immediate problem here in the woods is what to do about the two black labs. They are being fed, but continue to run loose in the woods, which is not good for the already stressed wildlife. The Big Woods people are looking for a home for these two half-grown pups. If you can provide a home or know someone who can, please contact me at 507-743-8584 or bigwoods@ means.net.

To the Editor,
I was really interested in Lynne Farmer’s article “A Cause for Paws” in last week’s Journal. I’m glad people are talking about animals in a compassionate way. Modern research teaches us how close we are genetically, so now we know what the American Indians always knew: animals are our brothers and sisters. As the article points out, animals are the victims of a human problem. There’s a fellow from California (founder of the San Francisco Animal Rescue) who is backed by a lot of money and charged with the task of traveling around the country to animal shelters and rescue organizations. He’s helping them to evolve toward a no-kill (of healthy animals) policy. If particiapting shelters can arrive at their goal in five years, they’re given one million dollars! This is according to a feature article appearing in the Denver Post. If Fillmore County were to establish a shelter that had a no-kill policy, we could be eligible for a lot of money, an endowment that could help the shelter in the future. Many places have been successful. Citizens and shelter workers report that they’re much happier for it. I suppose animals are too. It’s a better way to live and what we’re all working toward anyway. If Fillmore County were to have an animal shelter, my wish would be that they would also have scanners to detect subcutaneous identification tags. People are starting to use them now because they’re permanant and simple to put in place (no anesthetic required). Collars get lost, especially when it comes to cats. My cats have le .....

I have to admit that over the years I haven’t paid much attention to you or the hundreds of books that you’ve written. I’m not a big horror fan and neither is my wife. She’s such a wimp, in fact, that she suffered nightmares after watching that sappy .....

About a year after we were married, I took my wife out trout fishing for the second time in her life. Fishing in the Whitewater River late in the evening, she hooked the largest brown trout I had ever seen. It was twenty-two inches long and weighed o .....
