One of the two unentered Live Oak foxhounds that were spooked upon their arrival at Morven Park for the Virginia Foxhound Show last May has been recovered. Perfect, who never left the Morven Park area, was finally secured in a box dog trap.

Her companion in flight, Charter, has been more adventurous in his travels. He has been seen on Zulla Road in Middleburg, and Piedmont huntsman Spencer Allen has been feeding him but hasn’t yet secured him. So long as Charter stays off the busy roads, chances are he will soon be in good hands as well.

A much-relieved Daphne Wood, MFH, Live Oak Hounds (FL), has expressed her gratitude to the Morven Park staff, retired huntsman Kevin Palmer, Piedmont MFH Tad Zimmerman, and Piedmont huntsman Spencer Allen for their continued efforts on behalf of these young hounds.

Thanks Norm, I'm sure all true fox hunters feel a little lighter in their hearts knowing at least one of the loose hounds will be on the way home. Thank you for following up. G.

Has Charter been recovered? If not, I just spotted him. He was on Zulla Rd, in between Fursman Kennels and Hickory Tree, eating a deer on the side of the road.

No, Charter has not yet been caught. That probably was him you saw. The trap hasn't worked, and Daphne is quite discouraged.
