Human: Jason Lucas, Video Production Manager

We picked up Maya from a farm in Williams Lake, BC, last January right before the world flipped upside down.

Her favourite activities include riding, hiking, swimming, chasing birds, and being a constant source of entertainment.

The city’s acting fire commissioner, Annette Nance-Holt, issued guidance Monday mandating any “pets or mascots” at Chicago’s roughly 100 fire stations be removed after a mixed-breed stray dog living at Engine 116 named Bones attacked a woman’s smaller dog, killing the animal.
