Re: “Butterflies by the ka-jillions!

I think you helped explain what I saw yesterday (July 12) on Highway 20 passing over the Pacific Crest trail/Santium Pass. There were about 10 miles of butterflies flying into windshields. I thought I'd run into the Monarch migration but they were too small and wrong time and location.

Re: “Nina de la Tierra: Child of the Earth: The mystery of the Jerusalem Cricket

The parasites that these guys carry are called horsehair worms. The worms lay their eggs on plants at the bank of a stream, the potato bug comes along and ingests the eggs along with the leaves. When the worm has grown up in the abdomen of the bug, it signals it to go to water. When the bug reaches water, the worm bursts out of the bug and slithers into the water. Horsehair worms are filter feeders. They root themselves in the mud and filter stuff out of the water to eat. I have seem them a foot long. I did an autopsy on one potato bug and found a worm a foot long all wound up inside the abdomen. Unfortunately, it was dead as well.

Re: “Cougars on the Rise

Dear Mr. Anderson:

It seems as though the subject of what to do with cougars encroaching on populated areas is a topic of never-ending debate among my neighbors. Specifically, many see the practice of euthanizing these wild cats as too harsh and cruel, and wonder if less drastic measures might be just as effective in reducing/eliminating risk to humans, pets and livestock. Specifically, questions about live-trapping and relocation, or to haze them with rubber bullets in order to instill fear of humans in them seem to be what some of the population would prefer.

Is there a reason, based in science, that euthanizing these cougars is the only solution ODFW uses? I would really like to know. Actually, it would be very helpful to have a page on ODFWs website that addresses this question (their page on cougar management does not address this issue, even indirectly).

I have written ODFW requesting a reply to this question. I anxiously await your response in the event that they don't. Thank you for your attention to my question!

Re: “Spreading its Wings

I hate to complain but this plane causes a LOT of noise pollution. Please do not continue flying it over populated areas!

Re: “Spreading its Wings

When it first went over I thought it was a slurry bomber for the forest service. The sound was a little higher pitched, but about the same volume.

It was pretty neat seeing one fly overhead today.

Re: “What to do about outdoor cats?

I was just told by my police department here in Junction City, it's illegal to have a trap on my patio.

Re: “Cougars on the Rise

Another important measure to discourage cougars is to put window coverings up on your windows. I loved having my big farmhouse windows uncovered, but it enabled a cougar to see my cats lounging on the back of the sofa in front of the windows. It attempted to attack them, charging full force against the window which sounded like a bomb going off in the house. Luckily our storm strength windows held and all that was left was a big cougar face and tail print on the glass where his body was flung sideways and his launch tracks in the gravel outside the window. We now have shades up.

Re: “Cougars on the Rise

The woman who was killed near Mt Hood last summer had blood red hair. Really. I think the cougar thought she was bleeding. She was a smart person and I think she would have acted appropriately if she saw the cougar coming. She may have been moving fast because she started her hike very late in the evening. I talked to her just before she left and I thought it was too late She tried to get someone to hike with her.

Re: “Cougars on the Rise

If You Are a Foreign National Seeking Asylum in the US and Encounter a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent:

Solitary agents often will retreat if given the opportunity. Leave the animal a way to escape.

Stay calm and stand your ground.

Maintain direct eye contact.

Pick up children, but do so without bending down or turning your back on the ICE agent.

Back away slowly.

Do not run. Running triggers a chase response in agents, which could lead to an attack.

Raise your voice and speak firmly.

If the an ICE agent seems aggressive, raise your arms to make yourself look larger and clap your hands [Hands up, Don't Shoot].

If in the very unusual event that a agent attacks you, fight back with rocks, sticks, bear or pepper spray, tools or any items available.
