Boots For Scale

I wear a 9/9.5. These are rabbit prints.

There were some other curious prints in the snow on the frozen Bronx River that I could not figure out. No tail, as in a muskrat, and although rather canine-looking, (but too big for fox?) they looked too close together for coyote. Perhaps a cat whose prints, Bigfoot-style, had gotten bigger in the thaw-freeze cycle. I was too far away, unfortunately, to get pictures. Disturbingly, there were also human footprints on the ice.Found right across the street at the entrance to the park.

      Lizzie, the neighbor’s dog, who drew our attention to this former rat, was keenly interested in mourning, or worshipping, or something along these lines.
