    Hooray for that & this website!

  • Thank you for posting this, such important information for those not following the bee decline story.

    So great, thanks! We are on Snowden Cut Off Rd. way off the road on a shared access road …so no visibility. Any car stickers or such?

    How wonderful! I love when we get to see our Forest neighbors!

    Yes, Yes & yes. I figure at all times when walking about in the wilderness it is the food market of whose ever hungry & eats flesh. I walk in peace, but I walk alert. I especially like what you said about a “a sense of superiority and dominance over nature when in fact we are a part of rather than apart from the natural world.” Lovely.

    Hi Dawn, I have a background in Wildlife Studies & I would say everyone I know & read agrees with you! Thrilled I saw it & will always keep a respectful distance. Look forward to the article.

    Hi Linda, Yes, it was a great way to start the new year! It’s a beautiful rock circle neighbors have in the middle of a field on their land, reminds me of Stonehedge in England. It’s about 10 miles up Snowden. Happy New Year!

  • Heads up on Mountain Lion sighting 1/1/15 around 3pm at Stonehedge location on Snowden Rd. Large & Magnificent. Came down onto road, saw me in car marveling at sighting, dashed under a tree & waited for me to move on. Misjudged my endurance & gave up finally sauntering up the hill.

    • Way cool Jeanne! Where is Stonehedge location? Last year I saw a bear under the power lines on Tunnel, but haven’t seen a cat in over 20 years!

    • It is Way Amazing to see a mountain lion from a distance. But when I saw a mother & 2 almost -grown babies in my yard in Goldendale 5 years ago. I just wished I could have went out to play with the playful mother, as she jumped around like a little kitten when checking out my rainbow wind sock in my garden. But, I was so excited, I couldnt find…[Read more]

    • Not sure where Stonehedge is, but there is a very large cat prowling the Snowden Road, Staats/Stauch Road area. Very large — seemed about the size of a female African Lion when I startled it August of 2013. Cute, but I wouldn’t be at all interested myself in another close encounter and know from experience that the myth of cougars/mountain…[Read more]

      • My only closeup sighting was also in the Staats Rd. area, when my dog treed a cougar. Radio-collar and camera-trap studies show that these cats spend a lot of time in our vicinity but are rarely seen. Except when guarding their young or a food cache, or in some cases involving young and inexperienced cats, they are generally afraid of both humans…[Read more]

        • Great article Dawn!

        • Hey Dawn — Loved the article. Nice bit of writing. Might disagree a little with what seems a bit of anthropomorphizing by Wielgus but really appreciate the challenge to convention that his work presents.

          Personally, I think most cougar attacks are more about opportunity, risk, and evolution. A child or small adult present less risk and…[Read more]

          • Roy, you are very lucky if you have seen cougars in the wild 10 times! It’s difficult to see them unless you’re using dogs or the cougar is radio-collared. I agree that opportunity and risk are definitely factors in attacks on humans, but it’s my understanding that cougars are somewhat hard-wired for four-legged prey and attacking a human is…[Read more]

    Happy New Year!!! Thanks for your comments on the bizarre & enduring habit of humans scarring the holy crap out of all the creatures with audible senses.
