PLATTSBURGH CITY, NY -- 3/27/20
Two days ago a moose was wandering around the city. This incident reminds me of the time a bear cub visited here. I was down at the shit water treatment plant by the lake with my camera and spotted him. I didn't approach him, just used the telephoto end of my zoom lens to grab a couple of shots. The little guy took off into the brush and I kept walking, not running, to get another image. A DEC (Department of Environmental Conservation) officer ordered me and another photographer who also happened to be there to leave the area because we would scare the cub.
That was funny because the police chief at that time was driving around in his official vehicle. He pulled up near me and asked if I had seen the cub. Then he took off with his young daughters standing in the front seat, chasing the cub so that his kids could get a good look. I think a guy walking with a camera is less scary than a speeding SUV.

PLATTSBURGH CITY, NY -- 3/5/20
Yesterday city workers sprayed and wiped down this Trinity Park bench to remove crow shit. But as usual the crows returned last night and sat in the tree above, crapping all over the clean slate. The other benches were wiped down but they are also accumulating crow shit. Attacking the symptom but not the cause. There are ways to deal with the crows: http://writog.blogspot.com/2020/02/crow-crap_6.html

PLATTSBURGH CITY, NY -- 3/4/20
I feel sorry for these two men stuck with cleaning off the crow shit splattered all over the benches in Trinity Park. This only attacks the symptom, not the cause. There are measures that can be taken to control the crow problem. Until those measures are taken city employees will be called out again to scrub down the latest carpet-bombings.

WARNING: The link below will take you to disgusting image. I'm sharing this image to once again to point out a chronic problem the city continues to ignore.
