Terrific stories about unusual pets!

George, author of Julie of the Wolves and My Side of the Mountain, reminisces about the numerous wild animals that her family had as wild pets, including a goose and duck who were arrested for disturbing the peace, or the crow who took kids’ lunch money and put it in a rainspout at the bank.
