Cute Is As Cute Does

Mountain Goat Kids at the Summit of Mt. Evans, Colorado

Summer wildlife photography is prime right now.  With Mt. Evans finally thawed out enough to get to the Mountains Goats, my friend Tim and I made our first run up the mountain on July 5th.

Wild Mountain Goats Living on Colorado Mountain Peaks.

We were not disappointed with the results. Quite a large herd of goats on hand with at least a half dozen kids running around in the rocks.

Cute is as cute does.

Setting The Record Straight

A recent television news story about some guy in Frisco, Colorado harassing a moose that strolled into town. Moose strolling into town is pretty common in Frisco. Idiot humans are fairly common too.

This guy is pretty dumb. Harassing a moose is a stupid thing to do. They can weigh up to 1,200 lbs and those hooves will crack your skull wide open.

What irritates me is when the Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokespeople spout stupid things in television interviews.

Contrary to what this CPW spokesman says, and I know this for a fact.

Moose are not territorial.
Moose are not aggressive.

Moose are, however, short tempered.

Moose are very dangerous once irritated.

Humans are territorial.
Humans are aggressive.

Get your facts straight. Spouting crap doesn’t educate anyone.

I once heard a CPW spokeswoman state “If it wasn’t for hunters, we wouldn’t have wildlife”

There are some really fine folks at CPW, but when the people they put in front of a camera don’t know what they are talking about, it makes them look bad and it gives these beautiful wild creatures a bad reputation that isn’t deserved.
