Yesterday’s answer:

(D)   Eagle

According to Clarissa [daughter of Brigham Young], “The garden and the schoolhouse were in such proximity, and the ripe autumn so tempting, that a high board fence had to be built in order to keep the children outside and the fruit inside. Even this was not sufficient to keep out the big boys, so an added protection was provided in the shape of a big, bald, live eagle, who seemed to realize fully that it was his duty to patrol the garden. The eagle, I must say, proved quite effective.

“I seldom visited this garden without my father unless I was holding onto Brother Staine’s hand,” continued Clarissa, “for old ‘Baldy’ certainly made me nervous as he looked at me coldly with his eagle eye.”
