A cat down in the wild wadi next to my village was so intent on stalking prey that it didn't even notice my arrival.
Many hikers visit the spring over the weekend, too many for only one trash bin.
If the lid can't close properly, it's easy pickin's for the jackals and cats to dig in, scatter the garbage, and look for a meal.
Fortunately, this area is on the Hadassah Trail, not far from the medical center.
The hospital encourages staff members to volunteer to go out and clean up this area (and also Khirbet Sa'adim spring, up on a different mountain) on a regular basis.
I think Hadassah gives the volunteers picnic lunches, transportation, and pay for the days they clean the adopted nature areas.
