I drove around the area last night when I saw this notice. I could see they had a spotlight in the woods. I went to bed thinking he must be so cold. Very happy to see he has been found and is being treated. I looked into Mr. Cook and discovered he has been an avid trail walker for years. He has his very own trail named after him at the Botanical Gardens. Again, very happy to hear he was located. ♥️
