William The Coroner’s Forensic Files

Velvet

Filed under: Natural History — williamthecoroner @ 19:07

Things are definitely progressing in the natural history world. There are goslings all over the E55th St. Marina, in their grey fuzzy coats. The falcons have their pinfeathers coming through, and today I saw three bucks in velvet on Parkland Road right next to Shaker Boulevard. Two were two-pointers, but one was looking like a six pointer. All of them were eating shrubs and were totally blase about the people running past and the cars on Shaker Boulevard. All of them were also within three meters of me.

I’m beginning to think that the reintroduction of large predatory cats, like bobcats–or puma, might even be practical in inner-ring suburbs. Come to think of it, they’d make Browns games a whole lot more interesting.

  1. Urbanized animals are a PITA… We have a herd of 8-10 Whitetails in our subdivision, INSIDE the Beltway in NO. Virginia… sigh…

  2. I wonder if the big cats would find joggers to be easier prey than deer.
