The black dog is still wan­der­ing around Stan­dard, in­jured and hun­gry. AARCS was out on Satur­day to help as­sist in his cap­ture. Elvis was a no show. He seems to do that when we have as­sis­tance. He came back, went in the cage fi­nally, ate the dosed food and the freak­ing trap door didn’t close like it should have. He evaded step­ping on the trig­ger plate in or­der to ac­ti­vate the trap. He then got spooked and took off run­ning east out of town. He had a ton of seda­tives in him but Vet and AARCS says af­ter run­ning, the adrenaline in his sys­tem likely made the seda­tives non ef­fec­tive. How­ever, if any­one sees this Black Rot­tweiler, Labrador cross that walks with a hop/limp please let Traci Ras­mussen know. He is very afraid of peo­ple and will only run if ap­proached even from a dis­tance. Please don’t feed him as we want him to come back to the trap where we will con­tinue to feed him and al­ter the trap so hope­fully at­tempt #4 will work. We ask all res­i­dents in town and area to please be pa­tient with him as we so des­per­ately are try­ing to get him the help he needs and work to find a home suit­able for him.

At­ten­tion res­i­dents: there will be an elec­tion held on April 4 at the Stan­dard Vil­lage Of­fice from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm for the po­si­tion of Coun­cil­lor. On nom­i­na­tion day we re­ceived two nom­i­na­tions and thus an elec­tion will be held. The two nom­i­nees are El­iz­a­beth Nys­trom and Bran­don Duf­fala. If you have any ques­tions, please give Leah Jensen a call at 644-3968.
