Follow Me to the Senior Center – Believe it or Not

Posted July 28, 2013 By Mountain Seniors

By Carl and Jo Ann Hauser
Our home overlooks part of the golf course. There are many nights we enjoy listening to the elk and an occasional coyote as they wander around the fairways, unless of course, it’s three AM when they start to get a little rowdy. So I could tell you as a “believe it or not” story that every morning at five AM a beautiful woman wearing nothing but a nightgown is sleepwalking across the golf course (Rebecca, the ghost from The Lodge). Don’t get excited, men, that would be a believe-it-not! The only thing you’ll find at five AM is Yogi Bear, Wiley Coyote or a pile of elk pooh!

New Mexico Dept. of Game and FishSome wildlife throughout New Mexico have become stressed and or displaced by drought conditions or most recently by wildfires. While at first glance the animals may appear to be lost or abandoned, they usually do not need to be rescued.

The Department of Game and Fish is reminding people not to “rescue” animals such as deer fawns, elk calves, bear cubs, baby birds, or others that may appear to be lost, injured or abandoned.  Most often, the wild mothers hide their babies while they forage or drink. Usually, mothers are closer than you think. Read the remainder of this entry »
