Treasured Pet Survives The Elements

Pikachu

Here’s a story with a happy ending. Six months of heartbreak came to an end this week for a man who had been bicycling through the area in August with his cat, Pikachu, and camped in Grand Teton National Park.  Austin, Texas resident Ted Brady says on August first, a lightning storm frightened his feline companion, causing him to run off into the forest.  Brady was forced to return home alone after weeks of fruitless searching.  Then Monday, he received a call from the Jackson/Teton County Animal Shelter.  A resident near Jackson Hole Golf and Tennis spotted the cat and brought him in.  Fortunately, the cat had been implanted with a microchip containing identification and contact information.  Brady commented on his Facebook page, “It has been six months…the coldest, harshest months of Wyoming’s long winter.” Brady went on to marvel, “Somehow my little dude has beaten all the odds; not only in evading wild animals but also the cold of winter.” Brady is flying to Jackson to be reunited with Pikachu on Friday.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
