Short Report - This is the season that the shrimp boats come to the area to do their thing. They run their noisy diesel engines all night while dragging nets behind a scant mile or so from land, most times less. This is also a very important season for the whales, who are used to coming to these waters way before the shrimpers from Sinaloa came here because they over-fished the gulf waters. Last night, amongst the thunderous waves smashing the beach and the noisy diesel engines, a BABY MALE WHALE DIED AND WASHED UP ON THE BEACH. It is a crying shame that these shrimp boats should be so close to the shore, it is a sad day for a mother whale. Can anyone do anything about getting these shrimpers or trawlers or whatever it is they are to fish at least 5 miles from the shores? Aren't whales protected? Is it possible that a museum in Todos Santos would like to have a whale skeleton to display?
Also, on another sad note, 5 of the 7 turtle nests that were at this beach got marauded by scavengers and all the eggshells are empty and scattered along the beach. wow! what a loss of life! sad to report. - anonymous, Elias Calles

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)


We Want Our Cat Back - Please Help - A good friend of my lost her cat (Darrell) on November 23-24, in the vicinity of Los Cerritos-Pescadero (by Gavilan Hill, about a block East of the "3 Dome" beach front house. Has anyone seen this precious family member? If so, PLEASE call me (Bill) at 044-612-132-4710 or email me at usa13 [-at-] yahoo.com God Bless You and Happy Holidays.

Here's my friend description of our missing family member:"Darrell is a black cat (some of his whiskers are white, otherwise, he is all black). He has medium length hair. There is another black cat out there, but that one is a short-haired cat -- looks like a miniature panther. Darrell doesn't like people much, especially men (I think he was abused as a baby). He recently had surgery on his right front paw to remove his "thumbnail". Other than that, ears look ragged due to fights a long time ago. He's about 14 years old. Eight pounds." With Love, Bill. - usa13 [-at-] yahoo.com, www.bajabell.com, 044-612-132-4710, Pescadero

Iguana De Los Mangos Panga Ride - My partner and I recently went out with Lee Sherwood, of the local B & B, Iguana de los Mangos, for a panga ride out of Punto Lobos. We won the ride at the Hotel California Halloween raffle, but you can call Lee to set up an excursion anytime. It was truly wonderful being out on the open water at this time of year, with multiple wildlife sightings (whales, manta rays, lobos, porpoise, fish - all of them leaping out of the water for the sheer delight of it), coupled with Lee's informed descriptions and stories about local history and animal behavior. You can just cruise and sightsee or go fishing with Lee and his trusty first mate/alternate captain, Jose. Join the colorful crews of local fishermen and experience the thrill of their unique ways of getting in and out of the ocean. Lee's never-jaded delight in the ocean is truly infectious, so we highly recommend this outing for anyone living or visiting in the area. - Bonnie, bonsomedy [-at-] yahoo.com, Todos Santos
