Dianne I thought they could be very mean too (they bite).
Kathy There are 2 very tame tejons in the jungle over by the new church. They come right up because the kids feed them candy. They do have sharp claws though and I would be careful to not get scratched or bitten by them.
Tiffany We love Tejons. They are so adorable! We are always looking for them on the South end ever since Julie told us she has them in her back yards! We have only spotted them once & it was a whole family crossing the road by Casa Musica! It was very exciting for the munchkins!

Daily Update: Today’s the day. Guapo’s having surgery at 12 noon. Also Vanilla is still there so she’s having her leg fixed as well. I will let you all know how it goes. We are up to $835.00 for Guapo’s operation and are still hoping to reach that $2,500.00 goal, Arturo will - as always - generously wait to be paid. He does so much for us, we’re lucky to have him. So please keep sharing this link http://www.gofundme.com/Isla-Animals-Guapo-Fund I just know that if people knew they could help with a small donation, they would. Also there has been so much going on I didn’t do my before and after. This is Clemente, you might remember him from last year, he was in a repulsive back yard with two other dogs and no food or water unless someone else, not the owner, put some in there for them. His growth was stunted and he had a nasty wound on the top of his head. We thought he was about four months old but it turned out that he was over 8 months, maybe more. Than Sheila swooped in and took him home, she just loved him the moment she saw him, and he wasn’t pretty. She says he’s the smartest dog that she’s ever had and I believe it because he would have to be to survive as long as he did in the situation that we found him in. I want to thanks Susan for bringing our monthly donations up to $1,415.00. Keep sharing - we can do this and make a huge difference.
Isla Animals Here is Clemente after. What a lucky guy.
