Beavers & Bears
Friday, September 09, 2011
I wanted to walk today. WANTED! What a weird feeling.
We didn't see any beavers though. They may have been culled because there were getting to be quite a few & they felled a tree across the road last week.
A few years back, the city tried to trap them. In order to prevent their efforts from being sabotaged by people protecting the beavers, they didn't inform the public about the traps. Of course, someone's dog got maimed in a trap; thank goodness it wasn't a child.
Anyway, I missed seeing them tonight. I hope some of them are okay.
Where my neighbour Wes cycles, there are many bears. One night last week, I talked to him & he had seen 6 on that ride. The week before, he had an evening where he saw 12:
- a mom & triples
- a mom & twins
- a mom & a singlet
- three randy males (not together)
I'll stick to the photos thanks.
