Winter trapping and latest John Kelly column

We've entered sadly into 2012 without Sassafras and are still very thankful for everyone's help and well wishes. Our decision not to trap in the winter has led to a number of calls and emails asking us to reconsider. We'll send a more complete explanation of our decision and the difficulties soon.

John Kelly of the Washington Post has an update today on this topic at the end of his latest column. Three people around the Columbia Country Club saw his December post and contacted us to say they'd be willing to have traps set in their yards (which border the club, but not the particular path where Sass was tracked about 3 weeks ago). Amazing!

  1. It's wonderful that those good folks have offered to set up traps in their yards, even if Sass has moved on up the road. Have you considered the Kensington neighborhoods north of Chevy Chase? They're an easy Sassy stroll up Connecticut Ave and there are many homes and yards bordering on woods, the creek and Beach Drive.
