Jake and Jackie Learn to Respect Wildlife
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "Shhhh..." Jake whispered, tapping Jackie on the shoulder. "Take a look at this!"
 
2     Jackie turned. Her eyes followed Jake's arm and hand to where it pointed into some tall grass.
 
3     Jackie shrieked! "It's a snake!" she cried.
 
4     Jake about fell down laughing.
 
5     "Yep," he said. "Let's get closer and see what kind!"
 
6     "I don't think that would be a good idea," said a deep voice, as Jake's dad approached the kids. "Sometimes it is hard to tell if a snake is poisonous. Best to leave it alone."
 
7     The snake seemed to agree. It slithered off into the woods.
 
8     Jackie shook. "Now I'm not sure I want to go on that trail again," she said.
 
9     Jake rolled his eyes. Jake's dad patted Jackie on the shoulder.
 
10     "It's a good idea to be wise, but you don't have to be scared. You just have to be careful around any kind of wildlife."
 
11     "What do we need to watch for, Dad?" Jake asked. Jake's dad was familiar with the woods. Before he was married, he had hiked the Appalachian Trail, a trail that took him from Georgia all the way to Maine. It had taken him about three months, and he had seen a lot.
 
12     "Mainly, you need to remember that you are visiting the animals in their territory," he said. "Often, animals are more afraid of you than you are of them. The main reason they would strike out, bite, or attack is if they feel threatened."
