Recognize, prevent and resolve bed bugs

ANIMAL KINGDOM FRIENDS  —  This Montana Pelican appeared to have gotten separated from a flock of pelicans and landed in the yard of Amy Briggs. Making friends with the bird was a family dog that helped keep cats away. Ryan Rauscher was called and he transported the young female to Arod Lake and released it.   Photo courtesy of Amy Briggs
