SYLMAR (CNS) — Friends of a well-known Southern California environmental activist who died on March 1 are asking for the public's help in finding his dog a new home. Patrick Columbus Wall, a Newfoundland native who produced the public access television show “Earth Alert” and won a local Emmy Award in 1988 for his documentary on pollution in Marina del Rey, died at age 68 at Olive View Medical Center from complications of cancer, after a short illness.
The former Greenpeace volunteer, also known for helping institute recycling in West Hollywood, lived alone in Palmdale, and his pit bull, Big Head, needs a new home. The four-year-old dog currently remains at Wall’s residence, and is being fed by neighbors. Janet Marie Bridgers, Wall’s ex-wife and co-founder of “Earth Alert” said there are two persons have expressed interest in taking over the dog’s care.
“We’re keeping our fingers crossed,” Bridgers said. “ One is someone who knew Patrick and knows the dog. The other has come forward through a Facebook group concerned with animal welfare.”
She added that one of Wall’s sisters, Marie, also checks on Big Head, and told her the dog “looked fine.”
