Back to Glenwood Cemetery?

Got a call this evening that a couple out walking their two dogs saw a dog at Glenwood cemetery that they believe could be Sassafras (at about 8:45PM). The dog they saw was headed toward the Lincoln Ave entrance (from inside) and when the dog saw them it stopped. It went to the fence and got on its hind legs and looked at them. They approached, and it went on top of the fence (to the east of the main entrance), and then eventually back inside. It appeared to be a beagle with a straigher tail than Sass, and no collar or harness. (We can't remember if her tail was straighter when she was feeling threatened, etc). It matched Sass' size and appeared to be in good shape (and very smart, according to them)

We used to get lots of calls about possible sightings of Sassafras at Glenwood cemetery, but have never had a positive id there (and I don't think ever a track)...  

We're asking Sam (our tracker) whether she thinks it's worth checking out...
