Wildlife I’ve seen, in no particular order:

  • Bear
  • Deer
  • Birds of all categories, notably eagles, osprey, geese, and a little guy that was picking the bugs out of my radiator
  • Big horn sheep
  • Bobcat…? It was large, and had a bobbed tail, but it was pure black. Do bobcats come that way? (And yes, it crossed my path)
  • People
  • Squirrels (both suicidal and non-)
  • Mountain Goat
  • Coyote
  • Bison
  • Elk

Animals in captivity:

  • Sheep
  • Caribou
  • Horses
  • Cattle
  • Llamas (could have been alpacas)
  • Ostriches
  • One donkey
  • People

I debated putting people in the lists, but I’m pretty sure whoever was in that moose suit in Weed felt like a captive animal. Conversely, some of the bikers I’ve seen certainly qualify as wildlife. Of all the animals in captivity, I think the horses were making the best of it. I caught them having fun on several occasions.

  1. As far north as you are, you might have seen a lynx, rather than a bobcat. Lynx are bigger than bobcats, but not as aggressive. I don’t know about solid black, but they do come in a wide range of shades of gray.
