Tales from the Dog-catcher who captures your heart. A "must read" for anyone with an interest in animals of any kind. Critter Capers offers a collection of short stories and gentle humour easily shared and enjoyed by a broad range of age groups, from early teens to adult. Over his 2+ decades as an Animal Control Officer Wittek's "career leap" was anything but dull, with duties ranging from the simple collection and adoption of stray and abandoned pets, to the rescue of animals whose curiosity and lapse in judgement trapped or otherwise jeopardised their safety. In Western Nevada, due to its often rural nature, animal control also includes dealing with a variety of wildlife -- the occasional bear, cougar, or deer--that try to choose city life over their native mountains and foothills. With the humour and compassion that made Wittek an outstanding animal advocate, Critter Capers shares with readers many of the adventures and misadventures that he encountered on a day-to-day basis.
