Mary Moore Searight is a relatively new park, and I've been enjoying. Aside from the occasional person who doesn't pick up their dog(s) poop (I think I know who it is), this has been quite an enjoyable park. Until today. @Mousethedog and @Beezthedog stayed on the main trail exploring. And then I saw it. I dead carcass. I'm not sure what animal it was, but I was very sure that it was dead.
Here's what I saw:
- Fairly decent sized rib cage with a small narrow pelvis. Picture below with my shoe for size comparison.
- White and brown fur, dense and about 3 inches long.
- The organs were in the middle of the trail about 20 feet away.
- There were furry/bloody parts scattered in the woods for about 50 feet.
I'm don't know what it was or what killed it. I do know that it appears to be dangerous. I've heard of coyote sightings at Walnut Creek Park, and owners can never be too careful. A coyote could easily snatch a small dog. Please be careful when taking your dogs out for a stroll.
