By John S. McCright



NEW HAVEN — For the second time in two weeks a coyote with rabies was identified in Addison County.

A New Haven man shot and killed a coyote when it charged him in his yard this past Thursday, according to Vermont wildlife officials. That came 10 days after a coyote attacked a man and woman outside their Salisbury home, and the man shot the animal.

State Department of Health officials confirmed that the coyotes in both cases suffered from rabies.

Roxie and Tyson cmyk.jpg

Happy Easter! These guys are Roxie (white and black) and Tyson (brindle), a bonded pair living in Salisbury with six humans and a pit bull.

Roxie is an older female who was feral before being rescued. It has taken two years for her to be comfortable with people, but she’s okay with a pat or two now.

Tyson was also a rescue. He’s a young guy who was living in a car in Boston before he found his forever family. He is an escape artist who thinks he would like free run of the house and hasn’t given up trying.

SALISBURY — George Gilman, 79, has harvested game and wood from his property off Hubbard Road in Salisbury for decades. He’s dealt with everything Mother Nature could throw at him.

He remains undefeated, but a little worse for wear, in the aftermath of an attack by a rabid coyote on Monday, April 1. He and his wife Priscilla, 76, are now going through a progression of rabies shots after having been bitten by the coyote, which George was able to kill with a shotgun blast so that its remains could be tested at the Vermont Department of Health lab in Burlington.

Local residents Preston and Chris Turner have generously donated $5,000 in seed money for the proposed fund, according to commission member Heidi Willis. Preston serves on the conservation commission, while Chris is the community’s Green-Up Day organizer.

By John Flowers



SALISBURY — Budget builders in the Vermont House have agreed to a funding plan that would grant the Salisbury Fish Culture Station a reprieve until at least 2022. The plan also includes money to study and possibly improve the hatchery’s water discharge system, which could further extend the life of a facility that needs to comply with new federal environmental standards in order to continue operations.

Amphibians crossing 1 CMYK.jpg

ADDISON COUNTY — It is almost that time of year when calls from spring peepers announce the migration of amphibians from their winter homes on high ground to breeding sites in wetlands to mate and lay eggs.

Imagine the scene. After months deep underground or in a frozen state of torpor, salamanders and frogs emerge en masse on wet, warm early spring nights and begin their march to breeding grounds. It is easy to be intrigued by these seldom-seen amphibians. They radiate charisma, determination and moxie on even the rainiest evening.
