A couple days ago strange things were happening on my trails. Squishy mud stayed around after the sun should have chased it all away. I picked up a lot of clues but I wasn’t able to get to the bottom of the investigation.
So I headed back out to look for more clues. And while I was investigating I found evidence of something else.
Somebody had dropped something right in the middle of my trail. No self-respecting dog would do this, and it’s a good thing you can’t see it very well in the picture because it’s not a pretty sight.
It’s full of juniper berries! Who would eat juniper berries? We get these things all over my yard and they don’t even smell good.
Fortunately there was another clue to help me out. The smell.
I always suspected, but now I know for sure. Coyotes are not self-respecting dogs. If I ever find the coyote who did this, I’m going to give him what for for sure.
I might have to post a guard out on my trails to make sure those coyotes don’t mess them up again.
But there’s one more thing I’ve got to check first.
I’ve got to make sure they’re not drinking any water out of my puddles.
Nope, it’s all here. And it better stay here too.
