Minibeast Feb 26, 2020 02:52 PM Fall Victim on Hiking Trail Fun Parma Park story: Years ago I went with my mostly white dog. There was a little used trail that branched off and, being the type who enjoys taking the less traveled path, I decided to head off that way. Within about 10 minutes, I looked down and, much to my horror, saw that my dog was seething with seed ticks. And I don't mean she was hosting a mere smattering of the parasitic little hitchhikers, either. We doubled back, got to the car and I spent I don't know how long picking off ticks. Urg. Definitely didn't want them coming home with us. There must have been at least 40-50 teeny weeny little ticks scrambling all throughout her silky white hair. Apparently my fellow hikers knew well enough that thar be bloodsuckers in them woods.
