thats cool that they stay calm enough to come in the house. I would guess if you spooked them they would make a huge mess.

another fun one that I took in my junkyard.

when it moved I could see it was guarding a baby, so it didn't want to come out.

Steveo I have little mercy for animals in the road. I will do my best to avoid without leaving the roadway, but its them or me. at work everyone who drives there is taught this and its a major rule. we have had many accidents in the past that have taken out very expensive cars but nobody has bit it to avoid an animal.

Thats why they let your employes hunt on grounds. Gale tells me about all the deer that gets hit there.

Gale is an old buddy of mine, he's the first one to get me car sick out there :stan3: :stan3: :stan3: :stan3: :stan3:

I see quite a lot of wildlife at work, just never have a camera on me. Saw a mother porupine with baby, running around lastnight. We had a moose on property last year. Every year we have bear that moves around and has a acub every other year. There's a Great horned owl tat like to hunt near one of our substations. If you go out at dusk you can see him sitting on the same sign. Most annoying is we have a Screech owl, with a nest back by one of our gates. It screams it's head off, when we open the gate in the morning. Must be real close to the gates or the uprights, but we've never actually spotted him.
