Ernest La Belle lives in Wilson and has written the following wildlife saga, which he titled “You Came to My Door”:

“You came to my door on a cold January afternoon, seeking shelter from drifting snow and hungry coyotes. It had been two years since you were born on the summer range in Grand Teton National Park. Your second set of antlers had long ago lost their velvet and the muscles and sinews of your once stout body are now stretched thin under meager layers of flesh that bare the lines of your rib cage and the sharp corners of your hips and shoulders.
