Animal Tracks

A view from the back hallway window at 100 Prince Street. The tracks on the right are human tracks, mine, made during my regular trudge back far enough to get a good look at the snow and ice on the back roof. The tracks on the left are from animal unknown, and I just love them.

A view out the back window of my house at the snow in the back yard, with animal tracks leading along the left side near the fence.

We were trying to identify a path made by animals around our house last week. On Sunday afternoon, I saw a skunk heading from our neighbour's yard, across our yard and then on to somewhere else. I wasn't expecting it to be a skunk, mid-winter and mid-day strolling our yard.

The City of Charlottetown has a free skunk trapping program that I requested after smelling a couple of skunk sprays under our front vestibule. The company contracted to leave the (live) trap mentioned that it would be unlikely to trap a skunk at this time of year.

Luckily, so far at least, there have been no smells associated with the rogue skunk. Hoping it stays that way.

I don't know much about animal tracks, but they are not from a seal, surly or convivial.
