Re: HYB:Drawbacks:update

Don't worry about bobcats. Nothing but a big, big puddy cat. I see one on the trail yearly, and I'm sure they see more often. Ditto coyotes. Bears, different situation. Black bears don't like to be surprised, especially with cubs around. Not likely to surprise them if you're making any noise at all; they'll be gone! And DON'T plant blueberries next to your irises - they love them.

Update on the bodies found on adjacent property! New carcass indicates man
made problem! Land owner reports that another neighbor is a likely suspect.
Another report that the same neighbor "got rid of" his annoying dog! Meets
the description of the dog found.

The last flood removed older evidence.

Existence of black bears has been verified by sighting.

But it does look like I can tend my iris patch this spring without being
weighed down with a shotgun! I will keep an eye open for tracks since a bob cat
was shot in this county just 10 days ago.

I now relinquish my nickname of 'Buckshot Betty!' <vbg>

If you don't cross them, you can't plant them!
