Public Safety Sgt. Jeff Justice, who was the officer on the case, said in a phone interview that it’s very unusual for victims of robbery and theft to take the law into their own hands and chase after a suspect.

Out of a crime comes kindness

“There has been a huge community response with donations from all over. We got some donations from Southern California, and I got a call from a music program in Elk Grove that wants to give a donation,” said Tim Decker, Rancho Cotate High School’s band director.

Answering the call of the wild

Indeed, Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue is now the largest wildlife center in California, land-wise, and offers a wide variety of programs besides their core rescue, rehabilitate and release services including classes, wildlife conservation, and sustainability for wildlife. They are also unique in that they are licensed to take any kind of animal. Many facilities do not have all the required licenses, nor the capabilities, to do so and may only focus on one type of animal, such as birds, or reptiles.
