Humane Trapping

As many of you know, there has been a nasty tempered werewolf hanging about Caledon. It is not to be confused with the well-tempered, equal-tempered, or pythagorean-tuned fur folk, mind you. Totally different sort of creature, and it is real enough, as a few nights ago, I followed it myself (a good safe height above it astride Peggy, my Pegasus).

But, ill mannered or not, all ought have a chance for rehabilitation. Many feel the creature ought be captured and taken to sufficient Sunday Schools so as to inform and educate it on the need for redemption, or at least the need not to gnaw upon those than want not gnawing.

In that vein, allow me to present the lastest innovation by Professor Alphonso Avalanche, heretofore known for his more workaday inventions such as Snorty, the Flying Steam Powered Elephant, who, ironically enough, once munched thoughtfully upon my cousine Miss Tamala Tomobola. But she survived, and Snorty has since corrected this behavior, without even the need for Sunday School. Sometimes the threat is al that is necessary.

Ah--here it is:



Note the clever sign to the left--no detail has been left unturned. I do feel so much safer knowing that a genius like the Professor is on the case!

So, if there is a difference from free werewolf food, where could one buy werewolf food?

Dear Miss Gustafson,

I would recommend asking Sheriff Ortega of Steelhead about that. He's bound to know, seeing as he is one.

And he assures me that he isn't our one.

Thank you for the vote of confidence, Miss Tombola. Although I do dispute the claim that I'm a "genius". I'm just an enthusiastic amateur muddling along, really.

I had thought that the trap may never get to see use with the news that PC O'Toole was unfortunately forced to dispatch the beast, but it appears that the creature may have returned and reports of it's demise may have been a tad premature.

Yours

Alfonso Avalanche

For some reason, when I look at the contraption, I think of it backfiring on a coyote while the roadrunner it was intended to capture makes good his escape while taunting the coyote.
