"Sorry to share this but I just saw a coyote carrying a cat in its mouth. I tried to intervene but I was too far away to make a difference."I have to wonder what sort of "intervention" she have in mind? Did this good samaritan expect to wrestle the kitten carcass from the coyote?
Maybe she watched too many cartoons as a kid.
We have moose, black & brown bears, wolves, coyotes, lynx, and assorted smaller wildlife critters. Every year we watch as tourists and newcomers walk right up to a wild animal, with a cell phone in hand, assuming the animal will pose for them. Emergency personnel call them "victims".ReplyDelete
It's a self-correcting problem. :-)Delete
We had neighbors who purposefully left their garbage cans out because they enjoyed watching the bear go through it. Sigh.
