    Sorry,tailor, didn't intend to put you up to so much trouble.
    I posted the link because of the cute video with the animals licking the ice. The link took a lot of time to load because of the numerous ads and I was going to delete it again

    re: Mountain lion a few posts ago: “A mountain lion lived in L.A. and people didn’t fear him,” said Pratt, who has memorialized P-22 on her arm with a tattoo. “They saw him as a neighbor; they’d be eating dinner and he’d walk by their dining room at night and they’d share a photo and be like: ‘Hey, P-22 visited me.’ “

    I live 5-miles away from where the latest fatality by a mountain lion occurred in California. A 21-year old male was killed and his 18-year old brother was severely injured. Both were well versed in how to act around encounters, but it didn't help them. We live with them but are becoming less cavalier about the situation. The mountain lions have been devastating pets (mostly pet cats) and live stock in our area for quite some time... and yet there is plenty of other game available: deer and turkeys, etc. . Consequently our local social media has blown up on how to deal with the situation; it doesn't bode well for the big cats, https://www.gtgazette.com/news/mt-au...d70e23904.html

    Egg hunt: delightful !

    I don't know what to say, tailor. It's a sad story and it a complicated situation. From some other posts I know that you sometimes come rather close to big mammals. The question seems to me, why they are seeking out areas habitated by humans if they have enough to hunt in their own area. Maybe the small animals in human areas are easier to get. This male used to prowl around in the evenings. What made him attack this time? Throwing things at him?
