Couple stories about seeing a few animals pretty well much die out in the wild of natural causes when I was out and about.
1.) walking thru a pond looked over and there was a tangue vermin just swimming off the side of the bank, around the reeds and what not in a nettled area. Came out of the nettles and went 2 dive under water. this was around heavy rain fall or so and when he jumped in the water he got caught on a damn log or branch from a fallen tree he couldnt see bc the water was too high up. and he was thrashing and fighting and what not and just ended up getting caught on the damn thing and drowned. saw his rat tail just limp on the water on the walk back to nearly 3 hours later so knew the guy didnt make it.
2.) was walking around a ridge line out where i live just outside Tonopah NV and there was a about an 8 point mule walking along the ridgeline. well hes walking around and just slips on what i think was some garbage left over from local campers – in other words mistaked about a small mound of a mcdonalds bags say 6-8 of them for a rock and damn jumped on it, slipped, and pretty well much fell probably 600ft to his death. want 2 go back later to see if the rack was still in tact but guess what – had family matters to attend to that we just wont get into.
3.) squirrel climped up a telephone wire latched on and got shocked flew probably damn near 600 yds out into the distance like he got blasted off to damn space and when he did it you could even see his eyeballs shoot out of his damn skull – not kidding this is wht happens when electroshock happens or overall is something you would have 2 deal w….
