Lester the mule, background, was left homeless when his owner died recently. He was delivered to the Julia Wagner Animal Shelter on Sunday morning, July 11. A brown behemoth, Lester appears to have been sired by a Clydesdale and is a gentle giant, probably about 1,100 pounds. He enjoys the shelter’s year-old large animal enclosure, particularly in company with the diminutive Shetland pony, Pebbles (foreground). Both are up for adoption and would appreciate loving homes and a fair amount of grass to munch on. (Courtesy Photo by Michael Kearns.)
