Alone, afraid, attacked

Posted: March 6, 2012 in Uncategorized


If a concerned citizen had not come along, here’s the most likely fate of the newborn calf…as darkness descended, a pack of wild coyotes would have heard the calf’s cries. Drawn to the sound, this hungry pack would have seized the baby who would be unable to defend itself. The mother would have tried to protect but their numbers were just too great. Alone, afraid, attacked, this unwitting victim would have suffered a grizzly death. An apt metaphor for Gardendale, a dying community.
