GOULDSBORO — A carved wooden bear was reported stolen last week from a home in the vicinity of the Mill Pond and Crowley Island roads in Corea. The homeowner told Gouldsboro Police Chief Pat McNulty and Sgt. Adam Brackett that numerous people recently had trespassed on her property on their way up from the beach. As a result of the theft, new security measures have been instituted at the property.
Don’t fence me in
“Ellen” got the shock of her life last Saturday. The brown terrier’s first close encounter with her home’s new electric fence did not go well. Zapped, Ellen “ran for the hills” from the Corea Road residence. Officer Landan Scott helped round up the dog, which was happily reunited with its family.
Dog takes in lobster fest
Sam, a dog who lives on Lighthouse Point Road in Prospect Harbor, got to take in last Saturday some of the 2022 Winter Harbor Lobster Festival. A couple found Sam wandering near Lighthouse Point Road but were unable to find his home. The dog’s collar identified him as “Sam from Lighthouse Point Road” but did not specify the street number. So, the couple, who alerted police, took the dog with them temporarily to the lobster fest. Sgt. Adam Brackett responded and facilitated the dog’s return.
