Now I’ve really had it! I am so upset. Yesterday was a cool, calm, moist day and I finally had the time to walk to the top of the ridge, where this lands borders land leased by a hunting club. My mission was to hang more “posted” signs.
What a beautiful day to be in the woods observing the birds and small wildlife as I descended the ridge and meandered among the rock outcrops. Suddenly, I could hear a pack of dogs headed my way. They erupted over the ridge, more than a dozen dogs, all bone-thin, ribs and hips jutting. Two of them all but ran into me as I braced myself against a tree.
This is very disturbing, and completely ruined the mood of a fine walk in the woods.
As I made my way home I discovered I was surrounded by big piles of bear poo! A refuge for the bear on this protected space, safe until a pack of dogs wearing tracking collars run through boundaries they should not cross.
How does one stop this abuse of privacy? How does one protect the bear?
These dog owners think they are so funny when they say “I try to teach those dogs to read the ‘posted’ signs.”
There is nothing funny about it.
