Beware of wildlife

Dear Editor:

Aspen is a treasure surrounded by 2.3 million acres of land in the White River National Forest, a wilderness refuge for wildlife. What a blessing to live here. If you are going to walk in the forest with a small dog it might be safer if you stay out of the forest because there are eagles, bears, lions, coyotes and foxes. Speaking of foxes, I saw one this morning while driving into Woody Creek coming out of the trailer park with a cat in its mouth.
