As we have explained before, we live with lots of wildlife. Black bears are common. Coyotes can be heard singing on the ridgetop behind us. We can spot fox early in the morning. Elk live on the other side of the ridge from us (though we have never seen one on our side). A flock of turkeys torments us on our walks. We caught a good glimpse of a bobcat one day. And we have showed you before how some of Oswald’s cousins love to torment us.
But this latest wild creature stunned us. In all of our time up here, we have never seen one of his species. We lined up at our fence line and sounded the alarm. Our human clamored out to see what was wrong, but, somehow, did not have the same sense of concern that we did. He even grabbed his camera and calmly took a couple of pictures.
