Vancouver Island Marmot update
I spent the afternoon at the Mt Washington Alpine Center ski place, it was chilly, overcast and foggy; no Marmots. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
Talking with the people at the main building, the biologists did a count last week and found more than 200 VI Marmots. They found the remains of two that they think were taken by a Cougar. One sits out on a rock from around 7am till noon in the same area V reported. They said they are most common around the Hawk chairlift which is a short walk from the main chairlift.
They also have a resident American Marten around the buildings at the main chair lift. The guy said he took a bag of trash out and opened the door to the dumpster and “hit the weasel right in the face with it”.
