Ox-on Alert

Scout the Ox: Is there a bear in the woods?
Scout the Ox: Hyper-alert.
I'm not sure what they were onto this day, but the ox and dog were both onto something. I have observed Scout the Ox is very keen to sounds, smells, and movement. He doesn't seem to miss anything!
In these pictures we were downwind from the point-of-interest.
