9. Who'd've ever thunk it?

Bothering animals in the wild makes about as much sense as sayng, "Oh look, there's a cute little bear cub - he must be lost, let's pick him up and take him home with us." I'll never forget the guy who styled himself 'Grizzly Man'. He and his girlfriend long ago got turned into grizzly scat.

The only exception I ever made was with a young bird with an obviously broken wing, and even then I pulled the bill of my cap low over my eyes in case the parents decided to defend the baby they couldn't rescue themselves. Too many times I discovered a nest in a tree the hard way: from bird talons because I wandered too close to a nest I didn't even see.
