There were some good and funny guesses for the previous post.
It IS for removing ticks and it works really slick! I discovered a tick on my leg about a week ago and it didn't look like he'd been there too long. Dan got this little doo-hicky out of the truck and got it off (the head with the body!!) with no problem.
We were each given one of these tick removers when we worked at Alligator River NWR. We were also each given a bear horn (which we never used...can you imagine one of those things going off in the middle of the night in OUR park??? Some people. in the dark and usually in tents, mistake big dogs for bears. It's bad enough when someone rolls over on their car or truck keys and their alarm goes off!)
Hope you all have a great, and SAFE 4th of July!!!
