Moultrie - The students are reading the book, "Where the Red Fern Grows" and today, they met a relative of one of the characters.  Jimmy Phillips from the American Kennel Club visited Sunset Elementary School this morning with a red-bone coon dog.

The pair visited to teach the students about hunting with coonhounds.  Phillips says he got some pretty interesting questions.  He says, "Kids, they'll ask you some questions you have to think about to answer. I've never been asked how fast can a coon hound run before, so that was a good question for them."

The Winter Classic hunt and show is this Friday and Saturday in Albany at the Exchange Club and is free to the public.
