Nature Bites Back

It’s been a rough summer on the animal front.  A shark attack on the Outer Banks, grizzly maulings in Alaska and Yellowstone, and a series of elephant rampages in Nepal.  Closer to glamorous Queens, a mountain lion trekked from South Dakota to Greenwich, Connecticut before being struck by a car and killed on the Wilbur Cross Parkway.

So far at least, there has been no repetition of the killer rabbit incident of 1979, when a Georgia swamp rabbit took after President Carter.

Here in Queens the local fauna seem reasonably quiet, although there are a couple of beady eyed squirrels on the manor grounds that bear watching.
