    Because we all live in different areas and we're outside enjoying nature more than most people, I thought it would be cool to have a thread where we can share pictures of animals that we've seen on our runs and hikes.

     

    If you have them, share them here!

      I see these all the time and never get tired of them. They live on a lot of the islands in the Great Salt Lake. Some herds are managed by the DNR and others aren't. I really enjoyed watching one of them maul an asshole race spectator at the Buffalo Run 100 earlier this year. These guys don't mess around.

          About 20 yards, which is as close as I ever allow myself to get. He was on the trail and wouldn't move, so I had to leave the trail and walk around him. They can be creepy animals.

                  A moose headed to the finish line at the Speedgoat 50k. If she hadn't been running bandit, she would have beat Timmy Olson.

                    Saw this guy last March while running along a connector trail near Hilton Head Island, SC.

                      The guy on the right caught himself a rabbit. So technically, there are 3 animals in this photo.

                        I love this thread!  Lace: nice shot of the wolves!  Did you watch that wolf catch the rabbit?

                         

                        Here are a few of mine.

                         

                        A flock of Tundra Swans at Freezeout Lake, MT

                         

                        A brown bear in East Glacier.

                         

                        A marmot who hung out on a boulder that I was resting against while I tended some blisters.

                         

                        A cute little snake.  I love seeing snakes in the wild!

                         

                         

                        A tiny shrew who would not be tamed near Grinnel Glacier.

                         

                        Mountain goats!  Smile

                          Awesome pictures! They're coyotes, and yes, I saw the kill. They teamed up on it and it never had a chance.

                            Endless trails

                              I don't have anything cool to add, deer is about it around here, but did see some

                              cool animals in CA.

                              I saw a coyote get a rabbit during a morning run too, it was awesome! He also stood

                              there watching me with a bloody rabbit hanging in it's mouth.

                               

                              Sorry, no visuals.

                                Good idea, I love seeing critters when out for a run! I'll have to look back through my photos and post a few from some of my encounters.

                                 

                                Came across this old girl and her cubs on a local trail. Both cubs quickly climbed up trees, but she hung out to make sure I wasn't going to cause any trouble. Only about 20 yards away.
