News From rid Here and Th ere for erald, by Edna Eaton Wilson for Mullendore Oil Company ,, Ja0 Carl Lorett, 17 year old for many years until his Yale High school junior, who received a slight injury to his right hand in a contact with a rabid coyote is not finding the anti-rabies shots too uncomfortable. Carl's injury occurred on or possibly a day or so before January 12. Carl noticed the two farm dogs fighting another animal down in the hog pasture and went to investigate, taking with him a short length of pipe. Upon seeing the coyote, Carl proceeded to kill the animal with the pipe, but in so doing suffered a bleeding gash on his hand. Robert Lorett, Carl's fat- her observed the strange behaviour of the animal in that the coyote did not flee at the approach of a human, and called a Cushing veterinarian who advised keeping the carcass frozen until the icy roads thawed enough to permit travel. This took a day or two; then the coyote head was sent to the State Health Department at Oklahoma City. Four days later the report came back-positive. The animal was rabid. rothet! Carl Lorett was started on ed h the. very latest development ln treatment for rabies, and e his is doing fine. :on H :er, J Danny Lane and Curtis nd, flt Wilson both StiUwater high and school juniors and nature lovers went hunting on the weekend and managed to bag two huge snapping turtles from the farm pond. Upon inquiry, the boys learned that some people consider the meat of the snapping turtle a delicacy. nuarii Also Curtis has a friend [en M' Horace Strotter whom Curtis i believes knows just about everything about wild game that is worth knowing. The boys carried their trophies to Horace, who showed the boys how to dress out a turtle for meat. The boys gave Horace the larger of the two turtles. Not only did the turtles provide quantities of delicious meat, but each turtle contained more than 20 eggs in the carcass, which Horace informed them are "even more delicious than fish eggs." Ward Hayes, on hearing about the turtles told us "Turtles are real good eating. There are five different flavors of meat in a turtle." Later Dan and Curtis ate the turtle eggs, fried and say "they are very good." Mrs. R.M. Asbury (Jessie Sanders Asbury) daughter of !! the late W.S.
