What an absolutely crazy summer, we've had so far! Bears in our garbage, hawks flying into our living room window, and now a black bear attacking a poor defenseless baby fawn; wow It feels like a wildlife reserve in our yard. The craziest thing happened here yesterday. All of a sudden we heard a terrible yelping noise from accross the road. So we went over to check it out, and there was a black bear attacking this poor little baby fawn, right before our eyes. When the bear saw my husband he stood up on 2 legs furious as if to say "thats my breakfast". My husband scooped up the fawn and ran back accross the road while I gathered gauze, and wrap for its poor head. We laid he in our dog kennel while we called the vet.
We wrapped him in a blanket & took him to the vet's, where they were waiting for him. He later died that afternoon of massive head injuries. I know its natures natural cycle of life, but it was so heartbreaking. Its not very often I get to cradle a wild animal in my arms.
So, sadly im going to try to think about other things today by working in the garden, and maybe getting in some quilting time. Im trying the disapearing 9 patch doll quilt inspiered by Cory at dutchblue.
I Wonder what surprizes next week will hold?
