Dog still missing from Monday's fatal crash

DAVIS - Yolo County Animal Services officials are looking for a dog who went missing during a three-car fatal accident in Woodland on Highway 113 and County Road 25A on Monday, Feb. 28.

Vicky Fletcher with Yolo County Sheriff's Department Animal Services, said a male Chow Chow dog was found in one of the vehicles and removed at the scene, but a second dog also found on scene has since gone missing.

The dog is described as a spayed female Chow Chow, tan and reddish brown in color and answers to the name of "Suzy." Fletcher said she was seen after the accident in the area of North Pionner, Gibson Road and East Main Streets. "Suzy" was most recently seen Wednesday around 8 a.m. near Home Depot in Woodland.

The dog owner, who is from Fremont, is still in a local hospital recovering from his injuries sustained in the car accident.

If you have any information regarding "Suzy's" whereabouts, please call the Animal Services Section at (530) 668-5287 ext. 0.

Free Davis Wetlands tour March 5

Free Davis Wetlands tour March 5

DAVIS - The City of Davis Wetlands is open to the public for a monthly guided tour on Saturday March 5 from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. These specially created wetlands use treated waste and storm water to create habitat for year round residents and migrating birds wintering in the Davis area.

Killdeer abound at the entrance to the Davis Wetlands, running in spurts under the solar panels. Their distinct call, kill-deer, can be heard repeatedly as they circle above on slender, rapidly-beating wings. These tawny shorebirds, slender members of the plover family, have two distinct, black breast bands and a red eye-ring.

Although many species of waterfowl are starting to return to their nesting areas in the north, a wide variety of ducks can still be seen at the Wetlands. Ruddy Ducks, Northern Shovelers, Canvasbacks, American Widgeons, Northern Pintails and Buffleheads were recently sighted.
