MORE DOG VS GOAT KILLINGS:
Yesterday (Thursday 1/27) Adie Howe alerted us to this:
Watch out!!! Earlier today on our property (@ Spice Way) two dogs ( a rottweiler and a white large breed mix) attacked one of our goats.
They were not easily scared off by a neighbor who came over to help.
If you know these dogs’ owners please help us get in contact with them. UNTIL then-closely supervise your children, these dogs are not to be trusted.

There have been at least 3 goat killings in Deerhorn Valley. Animal experts tell us that once dogs kill, they will continue to kill. You can tell a dog kill from a coyote kill because the dogs will not feed on the carcasses. Sadly these dogs are usually family pets.

Rob Deason records this week’s beauty in a short Deerhorn drive.

HOOPERS FIRE FUND:
I heard from neighbors of the Hoopers who lost their home on Skyline TT last month. While the family appreciates the gestures of friends and neighbors who reached out, they would like to return the generous gifts– perhaps to be given to those in greater need?
There is a gift card from someone in Deerhorn Valley without an address (the envelope was mistakenly thrown away) Please call me (Kim Hamilton) at 468-3218. If I don’t hear anything within the next couple of weeks, I’ll donate it to a local charity or food kitchen.

DOG PONDS:
The lack of proper notification and some surprising details about “grants” given to the SDCWF hunting Consortium () are raising both concern and surprise among residents and members of the Focus Group attempting to work with DFG and other stakeholders. See latest writeup on DeerhornValley.net. Look for the DOG PONDS link at left. A new follow-up is pending.
