    Outdoor Tales

     

    Recently, Indiana conservation officer Brenda Louthain was called to a bridge to check out an odd example of roadkill in the northwestern Indiana community of Monticello.

    What Brenda found was a bit of a surprise as well as a rarity. It was an armadillo. If you haven’t seen one, it looks a bit like a live armored tank on legs. And while you might expect it to be slow, an armadillo actually is quick and can jump, sometimes jumping high enough to hit the underside of a vehicle.
