A big old bear killed two sheep and a lamb for Leonard and Harry Wade at Alvon last weekend and they put in a call for Argile Arbogast and his dogs. He gathered up some neighbors and their dogs and they took off on the hunt from the dead sheep. The dogs were put on the scent at 9 and by 10 the bear was on the ground. They chased him about a mile and a half. Dale Wade made the kill on the Little Creek side of Beaver Lick Mountain; it was an older, 255 pound, male bear.
This is the third sheep-killing bear killed in this vicinity this spring. They hope to get some relief now from the marauders.
In the party were Carl and Dale Wade, Remus Perry, W. C. Callison, Jimmy Callison, George Childers, Edgar Hull, Harry and Leonard Wade, George Trainer, Lloyd Camp, Ivan Wade, Ronnie Hollandsworth; Argile Arbogast, W. O. Ruckman, Walter McNeill and Elvern Totten were there with their dogs.
Miss Leone Wade served the hunters a nice ham dinner.
