Freaky is...

...seeing a roadkill squirrel body when you leave for your walk though a bushy area when you live in 'bear country' at 7am on a Saturday morning when no one is around, and 45 minutes later when you pass by the same spot finding that the body is gone.

Did a bear get it? Did the conservation officer remove it during his morning rounds so a bear wouldn't get it? Did the person who lives in the house nearest to the roadkill clean it up? I don't know. I didn't see any people during our walk, and only a couple of cars.

I mentioned this to my brother who had recently come across the scene of a recent coyote kill this past winter and he agreed that 'no body' is actually more freaky than seeing the body.
