Beagles Howling in the Distance and other Rock Creek Activity Today

Received a call today at 3:30 PM that a person heard a beagle howling and running loose in the distance near Oregon and Washington (NW DC). Not a ton we could do with that lead because it didn't include an actual sighting, but the caller said that she had talked with us months ago... Always nice to hear folks are keeping an eye out for us after all these months.

Speaking of which, the DCBeagles club ( has been helping to keep awareness of Sassafras going. Super leader Alexis has volunteered for us in a number of times to do online activity and on-the-ground flyering. Although she couldn't go on today's hike in Rock Creek Park, she helped us get in touch with today's leader - Liz - and we were able to meet up with them and pass out Sassafras business cards... Extra thanks!!


  1. Don't give up hope in finding her. If there are sightings then it might be her. I hope you can get those special cameras that can be hooked up to the Internet. Can wildlife rescuers help? Set up humane traps maybe? I hope authorities could help or the SPCA. They've dealt with rescues before. I'm sure you've inquired about this. I just can't wait to see Sassafras is home on your website. My heart skips when I open it and read Bayla is home. I'm happy for her of course but I read home and I think of also Sassafras being finally home!! Be strong. Do not quit. We won't. I think of her everyday. Come home Sassafras.
