Please help us give wildlife a chance by leaving young wildlife alone. Just because mom isn't around doesn't mean that young wildlife is abandoned. Each species of animal has its own unique parenting methods. For example, white-tailed deer mothers leave their fawns in a hiding place while they go off to feed. While waiting for their mother to return, fawns lay flat on the ground with their necks outstretched to camouflage themselves. Most young wildlife picked up by well-meaning, concerned citizens do not survive in captivity and have no survival skills to allow release back to the wild. Additionally, per Arizona State Statute 17-306, it's illegal to take and possess wildlife.
The Aravaipa Fire Crew, which is normally based here at Fort Huachuca, is currently in Washington training members of the National Guard to assist with firefighting efforts in the Pacific Northwest.

The fort plans to burn slash piles most of next week, Aug. 13-17, in Middle and Upper Garden Canyon. The burns are subject to change due to resource availability and weather. This will consist of burning each individual pile and pushing/spreading out the ash piles so they cool off overnight. The fort’s forester is taking advantage of the recent moisture and green up to prevent any issues with fire behavior. Ignitions will start around 7:30 a.m., and continue until around 11 a.m., every day.

We just got the the mews that today is #InternationalCatDay. We were pawsitively catatonic with excitement when we received a picture of a bobcat yesterday that we jumped the gun a bit. It's a purrfect picture, so we'll share it again today. Afterall, cats rule the world and the internet.
Celebrate International Cat Day by learning more about our native wildcats or spoil your house panther, if you have one, with some extra treats.

We'll have to change our hashtag, #RandomActsOfWildlife, to #IntentionalActsOfWildlife for this post. Our Environmental and Natural Resources Division team is out doing a count of pronghorn on the installation and sent us these pictures. They're still compiling the data, but it looks like Fort Huachuca is home to about 30 of these unique and beautiful animals.
We aren't kitten around, we love our bobcats! Bobbie Washington captured this image of a bobcat momma and her kitten just across from Greeley Hall. Bobcats are one of three kinds (bobcats, mountain lions and the extremely rare jaguar) of felines that call Fort Huachuca home. Considerably smaller than mountain lions, bobcats have done remarkably well adapting to urban environments and fort residents and personnel are more likely to see the smaller cats.
