Wildlife: ButterflyGardnr picture (Here Kitty Kitty!)

They do that kind of thing everywhere. They deny a critter's existence, especially something like a mountain lion or say a bear, becuase folks might get scared and try to kill them. You know, the old "kill or be killed" attitude. It's very unfortunate. I still remember as a child in WI seeing little brown bats flying around by a stream in the downtown right across from the movie theater. The town always denied having any bats, and most certainly not a bat problem. A newspaper photographer took our picture while we were watching the bats fly around, and when it was published in the newspaper it said we were watching swallows. I knew then and I still know now the difference between a bat and a tree swallow--or barn swallow or purple martin!
