Meet Auggie Doggie! She’s a sweet girl we rescued from the Crow Indian Reservation three years ago. At the time I was working for a small museum in Garryowen, Montana, and every summer the museum hires interns to help work the summer tourist season, and they live on the museum grounds. Two of our recruits that year were real animal lovers.
There is no shortage of animals in Big Horn County – horses, cattle, dogs, cats, porcupines, snakes, skunks, coyotes, turtles, rabbits, deer. Everyone at the museum has personal animal stories. Once a hawk flew into a small shop on the property – pretty exciting. Another of our interns killed a bull snake that was going after a litter of young kittens. The biggest snapping turtle I’ve ever seen was strolling around the parking lot before it was corralled into a box and safely returned to the Little Big Horn River.
