I sent 2 framed prints of artwork UPS that I wished to donate for the auction, but needed to send the dialogue and story behind each painting. Wondered if you could send me email address that I could forward this information, too. Ashland Ks is my home town, though I'very lived in SD since 98. My brother still operates the home place and is a bank officer in Stockgrowers State Bank. One of most that lost all of his grass, fence, and 3 barns. Saved the homestead/house though that was built in 1902. So this hits home for me. I also have a fundraiser going to raise $for spools of wire. "Art for fencing" to buy pallet (s) of Red Brand wire in exchange for a matted litho 11x14 print of mine or 3 other artists, shipped to them free. A print is $55.00 and a spool of wire at pallet cost is 56.00. Buying the wire locally from Cammack Ranch Supply in Union Center, SD. Can view any of prints offered on website www.weaverartgallery.com. phone # is 605-490-0543.
Update: Northern Ag Network spoke with Greg Lemon the head of public information for Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks today. FWP collaborated rancher reports that a total of four calves were killed on two ranches near Stanford, MT on Sunday. The livestock were reported to be killed either later Friday night or early Saturday morning. Both USDA Wildlife Services and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks worked to set up trapping efforts to capture the bears. The grizzlies were two young male siblings.
