I didn't get pictures but there was a pair of Bald Eagles feeding on a dead deer just off of the highway at the end of our road this morning.

One of our neighbors had a Bobcat get into their chicken coop and killed most of their chickens and a turkey. He chose the wrong house since they called a few minutes ago and said the predator was taken care of.

I put my truck in the CO-OP shop this morning and they replaced the Expansion Valve so I now have AC but more importantly with this cold spell, I have defrost now. Other than that I just made several trips out to break ice and added water. I usually keep the 5 gallon cans of water on the Ranger but I put them in the shop for the night so they don't get frozen solid.

Happy to read that the bobcat got taken care of swiftly, sure would hate for Mel and Maisy to have to deal with it....
I have no doubt that they would have. Our neighbors have seen it a few times but it stayed out away from them but it must have gotten hungry. I haven't seen any sign around our place but that may be what the dogs have been alerting to the last week or so.

I guess a bobcat would be better than a panther, cougar or wolf ! ... but I still would be happier for someone to shoot them than have the dynamic duo have to get involved....gotta love those two together , what a pair !
I know you would be happy to see how he responds to the fence line. I never have the ability to take a picture when they are doing their thing.

I believe I saw one in the backyard here, but only got a very short glimpse of it bounding into the brush by the boat.....there are Florida panthers around in the area also....there isn't any doubt what Gabbie would do, but we stay alert in attempts to avoid any confrontation like that....limited in direction that I can shoot in, so we keep her close to the house while dark.....sure hope that cougar gets dropped before long Bay..... :fl

I would love to someday see a picture of Mel and Maisy just lovin and hanging with the sheep, I would frame that and hang it on the wall, knowing Mel is happy with you just brings tears to my eyes. Mel is finally complete and whole again . For that you are my super hero Mike, thank you ( hugs, smiles and blubbering tears, lol)
