    The growl is unmistakable. I’ve heard it in my yard walking a new pup in the early hours. The dog had sense enough to bolt back to the door and drag me in….Located tracks in the snow the next day.

      I looked across the street for tracks. It has some soft, marshy ground but the entire area is not soft and marshy. Could not find any recognizable tracks, though I found one that may have been a track that was about the size of my hand. I am looking for scat now, but so far can’t find any.
      The one thing that has happened is that there are no longer deer tracks in the soft ground.
      The area always had them all the time. I also am not hearing night creatures like before. No porcupines, fishers, raccoons, skunks, owls, and most birds seem to be avoiding the area.
      That is probably the scariest thing of all. Where are they? I am also looking to see if there may be hidden carcasses, since mountain lions hide their kill to come back to it when they are hungry.

      I live over by Tolland Marsh, on Metcalf Rd. I live on the piece in between Grant Hill Rd and Cider Mill Rd. We have a triangle of woods that leads directly to the marsh.
