Given their lack of opposable thumbs, I suspect the culprit was more likely to be a serial cat killer. But that's just a hunch.

I was in a hurry and inattentive, so ... Before the actual - and admittedly more obvious - interpretation sank in my lagging mind managed to wonder if either:

- the hiker had missed or ignored the fact she was traversing a toll trail, or ...
- an unusually cunning bear was running a backwoods scam.

Not a headline but a misreading. I casually glanced at a stand of Christmas cards and saw one that read "Pigs In Blankets" that for some reason I read as "piss in blankets."
