I hope to get out today and tomorrow to take some pictures...in the meantime I saw on Yahoo today that the local moose poaching in the Black Hills has reached their list of headliner news stories. We had a wayward young bull moose wandering the area this summer; needless to say most of us were tickled by the rare visitor, even if we never got to see him.
Then came the news that some blankety-blank-blank had shot the poor animal. He was found near-death to make it more heart-breaking. There's a reward out on the poacher's head; chances are we'll never catch the SOB. I think this bears mentioning even though it's a really miserable story. Here's the link to the latest story in our local online newspaper.. http://www.rapidcityjournal.com/news/local/article_fd97ab02-b932-11de-9aa1-001cc4c03286.html Everything is not always hunky-dory in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.
