We finally found Bubbles’ (Champagne’s) band!
We finally found Bubbles’ (Champagne’s) band! Unfortunately they are on the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian reservation (SRPMIC), and we do not have an agreement with them, so we cannot go dart Bubbles, who is over a year old now, it will be a real risk to her young life to get pregnant too early. .
The boundary between the reservation and the Forest is solidly fenced, but there is a small spot at the river where they can still come back. Let’s hope they come back soon!
