Rabid skunks discovered in DeSoto

The Louisiana Office of Public Health Laboratory confirmed that a skunk harvested this past week in DeSoto Parish was positive for the rabies virus.

This is the third rabid animal reported in Louisiana in 2019, and the second reported in DeSoto Parish within the past seven days.  A rabid skunk was also identified earlier in the year in Caddo Parish. 

This emergence of the rabies virus is a reminder of the importance of appropriately administered rabies vaccines in all pet species.  One should be aware that rabies surveillance in Louisiana is restricted to testing animals that potentially expose humans or pet animals.  The small number of cases reported is not an indication of the actual prevalence of the disease in Louisiana wildlife.

This notice is provided with the cooperation of the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry.

In Western Louisiana, there are many stories and legends, and some tall tales of the days of the Neutral Strip, or as many know it, the Free State. In 1802 Spain ceded Louisiana back to France in the Treaty of Ildefonso and on May 2, 1803, the purchase treaty for the Louisiana Purchase was signed and the actual sale date was declared to be April 30, 1803.

Edwin “Zorro” Ezernack named Oldest Logger

 

By Daniel Jones, editor

Each year, the Zwolle Loggers and Forestry Festival honors the Oldest Logger of the Year with a special ceremony during the festival, which is held each year during the second weekend in May.  Chosen this year is the beloved George Edwin Ezernack, widely known by his nickname, “Zorro.”

He was born and raised in the Zwolle area to the late Abram and Lela Ezernack and had your typical childhood for someone growing up there.  He attended St. Joseph’s Catholic School for the most part and was a Zwolle Hawk for a while, but left formal education to work with his father at Ezernack’s Garage.

Deciding to enter the logging industry, he began by contracting for A.T. and Pie Martinez by cutting and skidding.  Later, he’d buy his own truck and haul short pulpwood for Cade Wood for several years. 

By 1977, Edwin Ezernack Logging was born, and he was employed by Palmer and Jones.  That company later became Forestry South.
