    They have Eagles, thousands and thousands of them, like seagulls with attitude, and serious talons! They will swoop down and take your little fluffy foofoo doggy for brunch, beg for hand outs, and go rootin through any thing they want looking for food!

    Eagle eat dead meat just like a buzzard. I have seen one rural road side working on a deer carcass. Stood on that deer carcass and just gave me a "you too if you drop dead" stare.

    A n old college buddy from Sitka told me that the landfill was covered with bald eagles. They're apex predators from the air, just one tiny step below their larger golden cousins actually, but just as opportunistic as any sea gull.

    Back in my field service days there was a stretch of highway in south central Wyoming where several golden eagles had the rabbit roadkill smorgasbord staked out. Had one come right over the car flying with me and his wing span was the entire width of the lane. 8+ feet at a minimum. Crazy big birds. Awesome to see up close.

    Reminds me of a weather station at a small airport. It was a tripod of sticks with a rock hanging on a rope from it. If the rock is wet its raining. If it has snow on it than its snowing. If the rock is swaying it is windy.

    No, Really.... This is a REAL Sign, posted outside the Airports Main Entrance...These is a whole article in todays issue of the Juneau Empire... The bottom stuff as put on the sign to bring a bit of Levity into the Signs Message... It was posted after a few Coyote Encounters, with Touristoes, over the last few years... People think they are just wild canines, (feral dogs) but they are much worse... I really want one of these for our “Road that Airplanes, land on” to warn the newbie Cannery Workers to watch out for our local coyote... and his Bear buddies...

    I have No idea.... but whatever it is, it would be worth it, because most of the Newbies are snowflakes, who barely remember Loonie Tunes from their Childhood Saturday Morning Television watching...

    I have seen coyotes run and span the distance of the 2 lane road at full kick, probably 100 yards in 4 seconds .
    with a 223 at 100 yards you'd need to lead the critter by a foot at least.
    Like bear you can not out run them and if provoked can be formidable grouped together.
    I rescued a little girl once that had feral dogs circling her probably a 20' circle , I had no weapon but snow to throw at them and drive them away. Had the situation been further in the woods and more determined it may not have turned out so well .

    Around here we have both coyotes and feral hogs. I'm not sure which is the dominant critter: probably a mutual respect/fear situation as any inner city gang structure is. Either alone is very vulnerable to a pack of the other. In any event I'm always armed when in the woods fields here.

    I LOVE coyotes !!!!! 1) I grew up watching one trying to catch a high speed bird out in the desert and 2) first time I heard one howl I was in a tent and it simply made the girl I was sharing it with "move closer for safety reasons" .... ;) :D

    I was motorcycle camping on a small forest lake once, and a guy in a van pulls in across the lake. He had a small yap dog, which kept yapping. The coyotes were all around us howling, but slowly eased in towards the van.
    Those yotes were looking forward to an easy meal.
    The guy finally cranked up and left.
    I listened to the "song dogs" through the night. Pistol ready, of course.
