A Fishing Cat’s Home: Here Today, Gone Tomorrow (PHOTOS)
Early in our camera trapping efforts, we received word that our site was slated for conversion to a shrimp farm. Little did we know that “slated” meant tomorrow.
We’ve had to move our camera trap almost every day as bulldozers, axes and fire systematically destroy each spot. At one point, a bacco shovel literally waved its clawed hand above Jo’s head as we set up the trap.
Fishing cats are still afoot here, but we can’t leave the camera out. We are moving to a new area nearby that also exhibits fishing activity. There, we will enjoy some camping under the stars in order to keep an eye on the trap from afar should anyone be tempted to steal it.
Wish us luck!
