This furry critter first appeared at the Fairmont Empress Hotel in May of 2010, much to the surprise of both hotel staff and environment ministry officials. It was identified as a member of the yellow-bellied family, native to B.C.’s southeast region, and it’s believed that it somehow hitched a ride to Victoria from Grand Forks. He now lives in the large rocks in the gardens of the hotel and hibernates from Sept to April.
