Marmot: The Saga Continues

The marmot saga continues, with one of WES' lead responders, Susan McCarthy hot on the trail of the wily member of the marmotini tribe. 

Susan has been dedicating her free time to tracking down the rodents whereabouts, speaking with neighbors in the Bernal Heights area where it's been hanging out. She has cage traps set during daylight hours, baited with delicious spinach fried with bacon (a suggestion made by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers).

Meanwhile, we've had a few residents call us to say that they had returned from trips to the Sierras around the time the marmot showed up. One in particular seems promising. 

With luck, we'll lure the beast into one of the cages by the end of the week so it can be returned home. 

Stay tuned!
