Well, you may also recall that Bernalwood never reported news of the marmot’s capture… because as far as we know the marmot was never caught.
Now, courtesy of Neighbor Leanne, we have these EXCLUSIVE photographs (shown above) of the Bernal marmot enjoying the sweet taste of freedom yesterday afternoon near Alvarado Elementary School.
Meanwhile, as if to taunt his pursuers, the Bernal Marmot suddenly became active again on Twitter:
However, there is a late-breaking wrinkle to the story: At 6 am this morning, a comment left on an earlier article about the Bernal Marmot indicated that the creature’s day’s of carefree urban living may have come to an end. Jane told Bernalwood:
He is safely in the custody of animal care and control now. He was captured last night at Alvarado school in Noe Valley.
UPDATE, 9:12 am, Aug 8: The @BernalMarmot has released this statement via Twitter:
