Someone emailed to say that they had seen Lew in their backyard on Saturday afternoon (4/11/09)!!!! He heard something in the bushes and saw Lew with his red collar and harness. He was also dragging a leash, though he couldn't tell if it was the whole retractable leash or if the leash part had broken or been chew through and the plastic handle part was gone. This was the first confirmed sighting we have had of Lew since he went missing!!! The sighting was on E. Argyle Street and Lew went running into the woods as soon as they tried to approach him.
Even though the sighting was a couple of days old, we decided to move the trap out that way in case Lew has decided he likes that area and is still hanging out there. We are fairly certain that Lew is no longer in the area where the trap had been so it wasn't doing much there anymore. BIG THANKS TO THE HOMEOWNERS WHO LET US USE THEIR PROPERTIES FOR THE TRAP!!!!
The person who emailed us heard about Lew through an email list, I think the Rockville Connections or something similar. Thanks to whoever posted him there! We are still getting flyers up, but that can be slow going with so much area to cover, so if anyone else can post to community email lists, that would be wonderful!!
