Deer & Skates

2002-04-01 17:37:34+00 by Dan Lyke 4 comments

[Deer in garden] Saturday morning this brazen beast was hanging out in the front neighbor's flower garden. The cats haven't brought any mice in recently, but given the spring infestation of deer I'm dreading waking up to find one of these dismembered in the bathtub.

In other news, Charlene and I went down to Skates on Haight to get her a pair, and while there I discovered how far skate technology has come and ended up buying a pair myself to replace my decade old Rollerblade Lightnings. I think a good goal for the summer would be to have an edge jump or two consistently single-footed, I used to be able to sometimes two-foot something that looked like an axel, but a description of the various jumps indicates I should probably be working on a Salchow.

Blacktail are native; they're part of the biome. Too many of them just means not enough mountain lions. Say what you want about the non-native fallow deer at Pt Reyes, but blacktails in flower gardens suggest the infestation is human.

The lack of mountain lions is one of the reasons I'm afraid the cats will pick up the slack.

Heck, a predator is a predator whether indigenous or imported. I see a picture of venison steak, a pair of moccasins and several drawstrings for my bow.
