Interesting Experience

Unread post by Stalker6 » Wed Jan 18, 2017 7:26 pm

While parked at a winter closure gate for work, I had three young cougars come walking down the road behind me. One of them snuck up behind the truck and crouched down. Pretty rare to see one, much less three.

They are very rare up in my parts. I've seen them a handful of times in my life...they are so crafty

You must have an enjoyable job that you get to see that! Once when my son was much younger - he saw a large deer with a full rack and he said "it was like a National Geographic video". We live in a well populated area but wildlife has adapted.

On another note - the winter here has been so mild that there have been a lot of early black bear sightings,

sightings in the last year:

The world seems to be changing.
