Following The Trail
I am finding trails near the disturbances in my garden. I have followed these trails into various places that could be dens or hives.
The first one I found was in a yucca plant. The trail seems to lead directly into the base of this plant (notice the hole denoted by a dark area at the base of the plant):
The next trail I followed led to a rotting tree stump:
If you notice, it also appears to be hollowed out:
Finally, the last trail I followed lead to the old tractor:
Just like the plant and the stump, there appears to be a hole or path leading inside:
After finding these dens or hives or whatever they are, I first suspected rodents. However, my dogs are good at hunting rabbits and small game. Whatever is getting into my garden has my dogs too scared to come near.
Perhaps I have an infestation of some kind of aggressive rodent? Or perhaps these trails have nothing to do with the disturbance. Maybe whatever is causing the disturbance is trying to mislead me with these trails.
That could be it. I may be dealing with a very intelligent… an intelligent… I do not know what. This is weird, just weird.
