Apropos of my post yesterday, I wound up today talking with Nancy Braker, the director of the Carleton Arboretum and, as such, someone who knows much better than I do what sorts of animals inhabit the Arb. Though gently supportive of my desire for yesterday’s creature to have been a fisher, she equally gently told me that in all likelihood I saw a woodchuck. A Google image search for woodchucks turned up photos of a creature that looks intolerably like the beast I saw yesterday on my run. How wrong could a runner be if a runner could be wrong? Really, really wrong.
