New Report – Vienna, Austria

Michael Kessler visited Vienna during the summer and sent me’s first Austrian Report.

Vienna, 2016: Michael Kessler’s notes on some mammals spotted around the city including Black-bellied HamsterParticoloured Bat and Wild Boar.

    I was in Vienna for a couple days in March 1993, but had to spend most of that time in jail and didn’t see a single mammal (my cellmates were going through various kinds of withdrawals and apparently saw a lot of critters of all kinds). All I can say is that of all incarceration facilities I’ve been in (in 6 countries), the Austrian jail was by far the worse.

    P.S. In case you are curious, I’ve always been arrested for the same kind of thing: geographical crimes (illegal border crossings, entering restricted areas, this sort of thing). In Austria they arrested me for being there without a visa when I was trying to LEAVE the country.
