Feeding Wile


About a mile away from our home is a camp area I knew of and decided to go check it out and see what was different after four years.  Nothing much.  People still leave trash behind.  Among the trash I found eight cans of food, unopened with the labels missing.  Out of curiosity I opened one and it appeared to be some kind of stew.  Looking at the ‘best by date’ it was still good to eat if you disregard it having set out in the hot desert sun for who knows how long.  Looking around more I found a bowl and a water dish.  “Huh. I bet that is dog food.”   

I gathered up the cans, opened two and dumped them in the bowl.  I came back the next day and it was untouched.  I missed checking the day we went to the vet.

But the next day I returned again and somebody had finally found it and cleaned the bowl out.
There is one happy coyote with a full belly out there somewhere.
I dumped in two more cans.

Wonder why the folks went off and left the dog food and dishes. Their pup must have been hungry for a bit!

I hope whatever got the food wasn't an abandoned pup! You did good by feeding whoever it was ♥
