Repurposed Ride

Sonningdale, Saskatchewan

The abandoned 1970’s Ford Pinto was in the forest adjacent to our All in the Wild trust land in the Sonningdale area. A rusting piece of metal scrap, it would have been a useless blemish on our natural world, except for the resourcefulness of a mama racoon who turned it into a safe place for her babies – a “repurposed ride.”  The only access into the car is through the small smashed hole in the windshield, thus preventing coyotes (a racoon’s main predator) from getting at her young. While the photograph celebrates the ingenuity of a wildlife species to adapt to human intrusion, it should also serve as a stark reminder that not all species are as resourceful and need us humans to respect and preserve natural habitat.
