Follow the tracks
Follow the tracks. Leave the city. Climb into the chaparral. Walk among the scrub oak, watching for signs- claw marks low on a gnarled tree trunk, a trace of scat, scratch marks on the ground.
And at last, look there! A print, scalloped front and back. Four toes, no claw marks. Another, and another, some even made by a two-legged animal.
