|SHOPPING MUSKRAT VISITS
CAMPUSTOWN - A muskrat, spurred on by warm weather, decided to take a walk
in Campustown Friday morning. Campustown merchants welcome almost
anyone into their stores but some thought that this was going a little
far and called the police.
Eldin Hand arrived on the scene, captured the muskrat in a box and hustled it to the veterinary diagnostic lab at the college. One merchant said that the little fellow was probably seeking some of those opportunity day bargains. The person who called the police may have suspected that he was seeking a file for his teeth.
