But the other thing that doesn't lie? Scat.
(In the interest of kindness, know that the blog is going to take a bathroom-minded turn. With photos.)
In July, I took a quick snap of what might be the product of an over-indulgence of berries for a big raccoon.
In October, I took a photo of what's clearly the kind of thing a bear would do in the woods.
As they say in scatological circles, "That is one big fecal coliform, baby."
Okay, maybe they don't –– turns out that "coliform" doesn't mean what I thought it meant. Huh.
Still, anyone with an eye for such things would be given pause by the appearance of such a display of large-caliber dung in the middle of the trail.
Let's hope it doesn't end in statistics and blood.
