Guinea update: About 10:30pm last night, Auggie began barking loudly and took off running up the creek bank to the North and disappeared. Just after 11:00pm Auggie scratched the door to come in. I went to the front door, opened it and looked out, no Auggie. I went to the back door, opened it and caught a glimpse of Auggie as he disappeared behind our car. It appeared he was carrying something in his mouth. I called him and he stopped in front of the car and he had another Guinea in his mouth. I yelled at him and he gently placed the Guinea on the ground, sat down, watching the bird and looking towards me. I walked over and the Guinea was soaking wet and cold. I picked up the bird and took it to the cage/holding area and the other two were still in the cage. This Guinea was in perfect condition, just shell-shocked, wet and cold. I placed it in the cage with the other two. Sadly the worst of the three probably won’t make it through the night. I believe Auggie has been vindicated!
