I cam home from shopping today and noticed some footprints on a light dusting of snow on my sidewalk. I do not recognize these prints.
I know bunny, squirrel, dog, cat and human without any difficulty, but these certainly do not belong to these groups.
Critters that might be a possibility could be porcupine and groundhog (both of which I have seen in this area although several years ago), skunk or racoon (which I have never seen around this area, but do live in the city). Living as close to the river as I do could also open the possibilities up to almost anything, but the one I have mentioned should be about the right size (maybe).
I have looked online at prints of the possible critters, but am not sure – so I am hoping someone will know what has been in my yard.
Clicking on the pictures will give a larger view.
