LAKEVILLE — Snow always leaves an interesting record of animal activities. Compass arts and entertainment editor Anne Day photographed these bobcat tracks at a house on Lake Wononscopomuc in Lakeville  last Tuesday, Jan. 22.

She also reported a face-off between a fox and a bobcat in the yard of her Salisbury home last week. The two wary animals stared at each other until both were startled by Day’s dog, Lola (see above), who barked at them.
