File:Culpeo MC.jpg to appear as POTD soon[edit]

Hello! This is a note to let the editors of this article know that File:Culpeo MC.jpg will be appearing as picture of the day on June 18, 2012. You can view and edit the POTD blurb at Template:POTD/2012-06-18. If this article needs any attention or maintenance, it would be preferable if that could be done before its appearance on the Main Page so Wikipedia doesn't look bad. :) Thanks! howcheng {chat} 17:03, 15 June 2012 (UTC)
