I'd love to go see hounds run like that.  Too many fences here to do it.

Two dogs in front are Whippets and the rear dog is 1/2 whippet 1/2 lurcher.
Another whippet with big jack.

Terrible coursing weather.  Left early and all roads closed hours after we left.

That looks miserable.  I know it got really cold last week, we eventually got the cold blast here, too. Shame you didn't stick around a bit longer.  The temps out there today are going to be in the upper 60's and low 70's.    

I spent a week in Douglas in August.  I like Wyoming.

Great News with the article,thanks for that,,be worth keeping an eye on the results of the blood tests when they are completed....i also think that it would be pretty nigh on impossible that they would have wandered 50 to 100miles,lets keep our fingers crossed

Yes, and I think there must be a lot more than three on the same reservation. Has to be to have bred seperately from the released ferrets.
They are probably in the perfect kind of place to go undetected.  Indian reservations are typically in the worst, most inhospitable place for humans but great for a secretive animal like the BFF.  Who knows, maybe they will find Big Foot next
