He got loose near a colony, near my home. He found his way to that colony! The caretaker had a scanner! The chip worked; I was notified that he'd been found! He walked all the way from across the street into the drop trap (no longer willing to be handled)
He was injured, we'd known that, but only when we got him home did we see how badly. The ignorant folks had put a collar on him, not even a collar, let along a safety collar, but a cord with metal bits.
