Ethics and Safety

Neighbors had been talking of strange sightings and we found tracks behind our shed.  We carefully tried to id the track by using a hand for size comparison. Then we took a picture so we could look closely without messing up the track. We finally saw the claw mark at the end of each toe pad and knew we had a canine, not a feline track. Whew, no Mountain Lion! 

I think if most people would check out the evidence before drawing conclusions and overreacting, we could all rest better. 

Ethics can include gathering evidence to substantiate a claim. Safety can be achieved by having knowledge and taking necessary precautions.

  1. I really like the idea of using your hand as a comparison. It really gives an idea of the size of the track. That must be a pretty large dog.
