One Wolf Still on the Loose

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Department continues to look for one of two timberwolves that escaped from a home near Robertsville. One of them was shot and killed last evening by a property owner of Wardfield Road north of Lonedell after the wolf was spotted in an enclosed area with sheep. The second wolf was spotted in an enclosed area with sheep. The wolves were reported missing from a home in the eight hundred block of Moon Light Trail on Monday. The owner apparently holds a wildlife license that allows him to raise the wolves. The missing wolf weighs between 100 and 150 pounds. The owner says it’s normally not aggressive but he’s not sure how it will act if it becomes hungry. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 636-583-2560 or local conservation agent Ben Pursley at 636-744-2974.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
