HOUND HERO HIDES OUT!
BY KERMIT SCRATCHALOT, reporter at large for Canine Collegiate
Review. According to a recent news story
in a humanoid newspaper of the Great
Central Valley of California in the USA, four hounds were accompanying
on a routine small game drive in the high Sierras of Sequoia National
Park when one
of the hounds left the group and disappeared in the undergrowth.
When his owner
finally noticed that he was missing, he set out in search. This was
in an isolated area
above 6000 feet among
the high timber. The owner stumbled into an elaborate marajuana ranch,
complete with drip irrigation system, the buildings covered with comoflage
netting. On noticing two men with guns among the huge plants, said
owner took off at speed. There was some futile firing as said owner
managed to hide among the trees and subsequently made his way back to the
others., one of which was wisely carrying a cell phone.
Law enforcement officers, using a helicopter and aided by information supplied
by the hunters, succeeded in locating the ranch and confiscating the crop,
even though the criminals seem to have escaped. Why did one of the
hounds leave the group in the general area of the illicit ranch and where
is he now? Has he gone into a witness protection program? Is
he still hiding in the forest? Has he been captured or killed by
The street value of the
confiscated marijuana has been set at $20,500,000. In the opinion
of this reporter that is not cat food. The hound-in-hiding is rumored
to be a relative of the noted Professor Houndog.
