This morning as Mrs. Wigglebottom and I were eating poop out of the neighbors' yards... well, I was not eating poop, but Mrs. Wigglebottom was eating enough for the both of us... our neighbor, who keeps us up to date on the hobo activity in the neighborhood, came out to tell us that he was seeing coyotes along the train tracks. I'd wondered where all the rabbits in the neighborhood had gone. Back in February, there wasn't any place you could rest your eyes in our neighborhood without seeing rabbits and now? None. He also pointed out something that I'd noticed. We have some enormous foxes in our neighborhood. I mean, like the size of a big raccoon. I'm checking out the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency's page and they claim that gray foxes only get 7-13 pounds, but the one I see in my back yard could easily be 25. Perhaps the hobos are breeding a strand of large mutant killer foxes... If so, just remember that you heard it here first.
