Wild pigs

February 08, 2021 05:30PM
I don’t think I knew such a thing existed. I mean I’ve heard of wild boars, but when I think of pigs I only think of barnyard variety.

It’s been a good year for lynx because the snowshoe hares have been so plentiful. From what I’ve read they will eat squirrels when the hares are more scarce. So this video makes me wonder if the hare population is starting to dip. Perhaps it was just a squirrel being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I had a family of three lynx walk through a couple of weeks ago. I cheered when I saw the video.

While I’ve been quite excited by the traffic we’ve had this year, I am envious of the variety of animals that you have described, James. Bobcats occasionally wander this far north, and I think I caught a glimpse of one while I was out cycling on summer afternoon a couple of years ago. They’re not really built for our winters. I’ve had a black bear and lots of foxes on the trail cam. This includies a couple of gray foxes. Gray foxes are a threatened species in Ontario, so getting to see them has been fun. We’ve talked about cougars in another thread, but they’re the biggest story around these parts. There have been cougars caught on two different trail cams in the region in the past three months. Both made the local news. Experts are trying to determine if cougars are starting to recolonize around here, or if they’re just transient animals on their way through. For the longest time ministry of the Environment officials had denied their existence in our region, despite many reported sightings. They’ve had to admit that they’re back now though. Have you been seeing many mountain lions lately?
