Notch Ear's Sacrifice

ByTodd Lederman

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
She's expecting kits, but a blizzard threatens to starve MOONLIGHT and her mate. NOTCH EAR can find nothing to eat. He labors half a night to remove snow and ice covering a cache of food. Panting, chest heaving, he claws at the dirt and screeches in rage when he detects the scent of thieves. Removing the last frozen dirt reveals an empty cache. Coyotes got here first. With fresh winds howling, Notch Ear journeys toward humans' dens, hoping to scavenge from their refuse—if only he can cross the car-way. He watches and listens through blasting snow for an opening between speeding monsters, then bounds forward. He can't hear the car coming. Wheels slide on the icy path. The car sends Notch Ear spinning through the air even as Moonlight begins delivering five kits. Will he survive to help raise his kits? Can they survive without him? In the tradition of Jack London's Call of the Wild, Notch Ear's Sacrifice presents the struggle for survival the way foxes experience life. A must read!
