    He’s a rescue. Unfortunately was abused in his past life. Could see his ribs, back bones when we got him. As you can tell he is well fed. And ferocious! Also fluid lol.

    All ours are rescues. Our latest came to us starving, we just had two TPLOs (Tibial Platform Leveling Operation" done on his knees. He could barely walk from neglect and poor nutrition. He is a whole new dog now! Black Mouth Cur.

    We have these around here, I found one in the electric right of way behind my house and took it home. After I looked it up and read about them I took it back to where I found it and left it go. I didn't want anything to happen to the little guy.

    "They do not travel far, usually living within an area less than 200 meters in diameter."

    "Box turtles also possess a homing instinct. If you find a box turtle on the road, do not take it home with you and release it. A box turtle released away from its home range will often wander until it dies. Rather – if it is safe – move the box turtle to the side of the road."

    Thought I'd revive this. My wife and I visited Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia last month and did some hiking. Years ago, setters in the area grazed their stock on the tops of the mountains and that kept the vegetation down resulting in balds on the tops of the mountains.

    Since becoming a state park the balds were disappearing. Ponies, and later longhorn cattle were released onto the balds to keep the vegetation under control. The ponies were released in the 1970's I believe. The cattle more recently.

    They are basically wild with very little input from humans, and they are never fed. They discourage petting the animals, but most of the ponies will walk right up to you and enjoy getting some loving. The longhorns, not so much. If ever in the area I'd advise a look. The Appalachian trail runs right through the area. In fact, we hiked about 2 1/2 miles each way on the AT to reach where the ponies were grazing. They aren't always in the same spot, so it helps to ask which trail is best to hike to see them if you visit.

    Red Wolves. The rarest mammals in North America. These two represent 10% of the entire wild adult population. There are 12 collared adults and 8 uncollared adults living in eastern North Carolina. Perhaps some young. The rest are in captivity for breeeding.

    One dark uncollared adult.

    One commonly colored collared adult.

    There are a few on St. Vincent's Island off Apalachicola, Fla. They don't propagate very well and the mainland is only about 150 yards away at Indian Pass. The ones that "escape" like the sambar deer there, are soon shot by the locals. The sambars are shot as trophies and food and the red wolves are shot as vermin. The locals consider them "coyotes on steroids."

    Like Alligator River NWR, once they wander off they tend to get shot. A few years ago the eastern NC population was approaching 120. But between getting killed by cars and illegal shooting, we're down to 20 now.

    Tried to get a picture of the alligator in the canal (drainage ditch),he didn't stick around. 20220715_203056.jpg
    The little lizard did.

    What would you carry for gator protection.
    That would be a thread of its own.

    One night the ugly hog under the feeder caught a round ball from my .54 caliber muzzleloader and ran. Later discovered bones and a greasy spot where the coyotes and buzzards dined on the critter about 125 yards away. . IMG_0040.JPG
