Yesterday I told you about all those police cars and sheriff’s vehicles that were parked right by my trails. I was afraid they were after my person, even though I didn’t know what she could have done wrong.
But after a little further investigation I believe I’ve discovered who all those police officers are after – or at least why they’re after them.
You see, I ran into a bunch of prickly pear cactus that was totally smashed up, demolished, and destroyed. And now I’m sure all those police officers are looking for the cactus murderers.
I thought maybe the gophers were guilty, because I found some gopher holes right next to that cactus.
But those gophers are much too little to do all that damage. They probably ran back down their holes and hid.
Then I thought maybe the javelina could have done this. But when javelina eat the prickly pear they leave teeth marks and they’re not usually into total cactus destruction. After all, that would be future dinners they’d be destroying
So I’m going to keep working on my investigation …
and if those police officers don’t find the cactus murderers first, then when I find them I’m really going to give them what for.
Maybe I’ll cook up a batch of this mashed up cactus and feed it to them.
Oh, did I forget to take out the pricklers? My mistake.
