And here's the story in English...

Kenny Trengrove

Collected in Redruth

Kenny Trengrove, who lived up by the King Edward Mine at Bolenowe kept the following animals:





Cats, dogs, guinea pigs, hedgehogs and anything else wounded or lost that was lucky enough to end up at his place.

Also, a Russian bear rescued from a circus.

This bear would stand up on her hind legs and watch over the foot path than ran beside the Trengrove Asylum for the Lost and Found. She loved the winter best, but also the gorse, which she could scratch her back on and inhale the coconutty aroma’s.

Some were very surprised to see a bear overlooking the hedge, and Kenny had been sent many letters from the council, which he ignored, and shredded for bedding for those in his care.

When he got the wolves though, he moved to Troon, up behind Redruth.

In Troon, he was understood.

Enough said.
