ELK CITY NEWS: Wolf, cougar reports in


Jamie Edmondson Elk City 842-2452

— Winners of the Elk City lighting contest were: first place – Wilderness Eatery; second place - Chris Thompson; third place – Al Varllarde. Congratulations to all and thanks to all who lit up the holidays with cheer!

Wolf report – a pack was seen up Swell Creek a couple of weeks before Christmas. Yes, folks, they are still around and threatening. Couldn’t let the kids sled down to our meadow without an adult present and aware of the threat of the wolves. This “non-essential experimental” wolf introduction is sure making it hard to live here free from fear! I think it’s time the experiment was over. How about you?

Cougar report – The other night, Joe Denham was sitting in his house about 6:30 p.m. when he heard a “thump” at his sliding glass door. He looked and there was a cougar staring back at him! Also, Levi Beeler found cougar tracks up on Flat Iron.

Birthdays: Heather Enos, Dana Paisley, Joe Arellano and Beverly Farmer.
