Bro, me doggies alert me on a regular basis of creatures that have thawed out of the Siberian permafrost and are roaming the streets.
I was forced to post the following at the local dog park.

"Attention: water dogs, coyotes, feral hogs, bears!
Please use the existing mud wallows before starting a new one.
