How to solve mice problems in the Mission

Screen Shot 2017-08-11 at 11.21.55 AM

Legendary blogger and former Missionite Tony Pierce, in a post about skateboard designer Todd Francis, recalls a fearsome tale of the Mission in the ’90s:

after college when i was transferred up to Frisco i needed a place to live and he had a spare room in his apartment on 22nd and Folsom.

we had a mice problem. there was a hole in the apartment somewhere. but he had these giant snakes in a fish tank.

he let them out to roam. they ate all the mice and slithered back into their tanks.

Read on for the rest of Tony’s story.

This little piggy went “Dolores Park is okay I guess” all the way home

Earlier this month a wild pig terrorized some neighbors near Dolores Park. Well, we’re happy to report the pig, whose name is Janice btw, is safe and sound and nowhere near the Mission.

SF Gate reports:

A little piggy has been adopted after she got loose and sent Good Samaritans on a hog hunt through San Francisco’s Mission District this month.

Janice the wayward piglet’s new home will be with Al Wolf, director of Sonoma County Reptile Rescue in Sebastopol, San Francisco Animal Care and Control announced Friday.

“We’re gonna miss her,” said Deb Campbell, a spokeswoman for San Francisco Animal Care and Control, the shelter where Janice has been staying. “She’s so awesome. She’s so cute.”

The 10-pound porker led a group of people on a chase on Dolores Street on March 8, running under cars to evade her pursuers and prompting a police officer to block traffic in the area. Brother Damian of the Society of Saint Francis headed the pursuit.

“We had a three-block up-and-down and up-and-down chase,” he said the day of Janice’s capture.

Nah, just kidding. It’s somebody’s lost pet we think, and the SFPD were on the scene (haha) and we think maybe it ended up with the SPCA?

(Thanks, Victoria!)
