    No pic but dropped my 1st grader off at school yesterday and on my way back saw a rabbit and a crow going at it.

    Stopped the car to check it out. This was half a block from the school on the main sidewalk with kids walking.

    The crow was trying to eat a baby rabbit right in front of its mom. I threw a rock at the crow to scare it off but instead it picked up the baby bunny, flew away, then dropped the baby directly onto the sidewalk from abut 20ft high.

    So there is this baby bunny with broken legs and internal injuries trying to run and just twitching on the sidewalk with kids around.

    Mama bunny bounced and I wanted to smash the babies head with a rock to put it out of its misery but hard to do with kids around.

    So I left.

    Lesson learned, next time just leave nature alone.

    Panhandle is really sharkey.

    Last year when we were in 30a they had the chopper out telling people to get out of the water. Another reason why I prefer Lowcountry I guess.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Dog took on mountain lion and came out on the short side, but probably saved her owner.

    And I have to ask Abraham, what is going on with that turtle? Is the snapping turtle an escaped pet or something? And who keeps a snapping turtle as a pet? Weird.

    Turtle people are a bit odd...but most likely that guy just wandered out of a pond near by???

    Friend of mine had a giant snapping turtle he kept in the bath tub. He had to shower my standing on the top edges of the tub. Lime I said, turtle people are odd (but not as odd as snake people)

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    I was riding the local trails yesterday, noticed some movement on my right. It was a bear swimming in a stock pond.
    All I could see was the head so no idea how big it was.
    Stopping for a picture seemed like a bad idea so I just kept going.
    I heard it get out and run through the brush. It sounded big.

    For your earlier question it looks like there are some introduced common snapping turtles in the lake here, they're not native but there are some. I guess we've also got introduced spiny softshell turtles. I'll have to keep an eye out for them.

    I took the picture 0.4 - 0.5 miles from the water depending on how the turtle got there. It seemed intent on going uphill.

    Down in Harbor Island Bahamas they had Turtle Bay were tourists would come and feed the hundreds of turtles.
    During the early days of Covid the government lock down the islandís.
    Didnít even allow commercial fishing.
    The sharks that normally fallowed the fishing boats came in and ate all the turtles.

    Two threads, to be exact.

    But don't worry, we can infer.

    Yeah, I can't find the clueless tourist vs wildlife thread either.

    I've spent a lot of time living and working in YNP and the critters are so tolerant, you really have to tweak them to get a reaction like that.
