A few shots from our patrol for spawning salmon on Byrne Creek in SE Burnaby.
We found this dead rodent near the Meadow Ave. bridge. A bit of blood at the nose, but no visible damage otherwise. Used a couple of sticks to pick it up and move it into the bush.
UPDATE: On our spawner patrol a day later, it was gone. Nature cleans up fast. I just hope this wasn’t a rodenticide case that may affect whatever ate it. . .
UPDATE2: According to the hive mind at iNaturalist this is a Brown (Norway) Rat.
