Animal track identification
If you look carefully (just right of center top on photo) on the dirt road you will see an animal track. The size was about the same width and length as the palm of my hand. The stride between tracks was about 30 inches, the animal heavy enough to really sink into the fairly set up mud.....I compared an enhanced cropped version side by side to another track on the web. Result: Black Bear Problem: Indiana isn't supposed to have any of those. It can't be a big cat because the claws were not retracted as seen in the imprint. There have been rare panther sightings in Indiana with very few in this part of the state. Why of interest? This is where Phebes and I work the flat circular track to school at the trot. It is along a large creek and surrounded by woodlands.
