Just a typical day to start. I headed out to Anacostia park to go truffle hunting (morels) and stumble across a little gem – a make-shift noose overlaying a groundhog’s den. True, I know for a fact there are homeless people occupying this park, but are they really so hungry that he thinks this will work? Me thinks there is an easier way to get a meal. And besides, groundhog’s always have two entrances! But maybe the National Park Service is “trying” to control them? No. So, let me break this contraption down and let the wildlife go back to living in the concrete-urban jungle.
Stupidly the National Park Service is mowing the meadows and rabbits were running everywhere. I witnessed an off leash dog go after this one and unfortunately it didn’t make it. And the poor meadow voles are also running around in a panic. In pure frustration, my lungs opened up on the dog owner but my words fell upon deaf ears.
