A sad update

My most-read post  to date has been this one, detailing the sighting of an unusually-marked skunk in our back yard. I must now report that last night, this creature,

who had lived here for at least four years, was killed by our neighbor's golden retriever, responsible for the death of a chipmunk earlier in the summer. Evidently, this dog, good-natured with humans, is a monster with other species.  
I now live in fear for Stumpy the squirrel. In my  opinion, domestic animals, like badly-behaved children, should not be left outdoors unsupervised.
