Nature Takes Its Course

Takes its course....or a meal.

Yesterday, a squirrel met his demise here, a victim of high-speed lead from a pellet gun.  Can't say who could have done that sort of deed, of course......

Anyhoo, I had slated a proper disposal of the corpse for this morning, but something saved me the time and effort during the night.

Could have been an owl or one of the feral cats which are around here; maybe a chickenhawk (but I don't think they grab meals at night.)  We've seen raccoons, but have only heard about coyotes which appear about half-mile to the north.

Dinner was served, and if another squirrel attempts to purloin the bird-food, there may be a second course available!
