It snowed about 4 to 5 inches during the day yesterday while we were at work. After work, as we drove up our 500 ft. driveway, our headlights lit up a winter wonderland of fresh snow. In the fresh snow there were all kinds of tracks: deer, squirrel, rabbit, birds, etc. But then we noticed some huge tracks up near the house. Our first thought was that someone was tresspassing. On closer inspection we could tell it was an animal....large animal. Each track was about 36 to 40 inches from the next one. The tracks were the type where the hind foot would step into the track left by the front foot. Each print was about 6 to 8 inches in diameter. Since the snow was coming down we could not see any definition of the prints, like claws, pads, etc. So what do you think it was? We did have a big black bear (~400 lbs) pay us a visit this past spring. But, there has also been sightings of timberwolves in the area for the past several years. Sure wish I could have seen it. It seemed like it was making a beeline to a new suet feeder I hung last week that had about 10 pounds of suet in it....but it turned around about 25 feet from the feeder. I wonder if we scared whatever it was when we drove up the driveway?
