No luck with the last sighting. We had to stop for the night because it was too dark. We will be back in the morning.

Please call my cell 860-919-7477 if you see or find him. He is very friendly just frightened.


His tail is mostly tan, if it has white, it would only be a little bit. The underside is whiter
