I can live with rabbits in my garden, even if I don't like them. Let's do all we can to people whose homes are in or around national parks and protected areas, to live with wildlife that they would likewise prefer to live without.

What is perhaps most disquieting about the photograph is the vigilante feel that echoes a lynch mob -- dehumanize, vilify, and murder. Wolves are now reviled and persecuted in a land where they once roamed wild and free prior to European colonization.

But by now the sun was cutting across the tops of the hills with that last and best of the golden light, and it was pretty much too late for snakes. I took a breath, sat down on a rock. Maybe I'd stay and watch the moonrise. And then I saw the scat, right there, and it didn't look like a coyote.
