Data Indicates that Bike Theft is on the Rise During the COVID 19 Pandemic
Yep totally agree - my town is pretty small but the amount of bike thefts is crazy. Some are just kids who know how to do it and use them to go home to the estate, others definitely seem more organised (I imagine they get broken down quickly and sold for parts, and sold well outside the theft area). I never leave any of my decent bikes locked up anywhere in public if I can at all help it - and have a specific beater bike to get around on just so I don't care if it's nicked. I used to have a brooks saddle which I had a separate cable lock from the seat rails to the frame just in case. Sounds paranoid but it isn't at all! My shed with the beater is like fort-knox. To be fair some people do ask for it a bit - I recently confronted a local lady locking her 3k+ ebike to a railing just by the front wheel, and you often see high-value bikes locked with those pound shop locks which I'm pretty sure just yank free with a bit of force. So quite often it's opportunistic too. But there are those who will track people from starva or marketplace, scope out their property and go directly for the bikes - happened to a few people I know. UK = SHIT! and that's just one reason haha

Mountain Lion Shot & Killed After Stalking Family on California Trail
@colincolin: Thank you - "I'm here all night folks" But in all seriousness I don't pretend to know what I'd do in the situation, but at the same time, saying a lion didn't show 'normal lion behaviour' is a classic human reaction to WILD animals not being able to be 'controlled'. It's sad that many species will have their territory reduced, there's less prey, they learn that humans are a good source of food, more and more interactions will happen, and unfortunately more will be 'put down'.
