The Wild Beast Thread


Here's what roams the woods at our cottage. I thought it was a coyote, but it is a 'red wolf' . The real wolves show up in the winter. Saw one take down a deer on the ice a few years ago.

We had a black bear poke a hole through the kitchen window a while back, to grab a loaf of bread.

So, what's in your backyard? Racoons and squirrels don't count.

Roadrunners and deer. There are reports of cougars seen nearby. Coyotes are a problem is some nearby areas, but not right here.

Sadly, nothing but birds and rodents in my back yard. The local hills (a few miles away) have coyote, deer, bobcat, mountain lion, black bear and lot's of raptors. Haven't seen a bear or mountain lion myself, but I hope to someday.

Man, that wolf is beautiful!

So, do all your "wild beasts" wear collars ?

You've never been in an outhouse with a southern possum have you?

Can't say I've ever seen a possum, confederate or yankee, although I'm told they exist up here in the Great White North.

Was the outhouse a one or two holer? If the latter, plenty of room for all. Unless you is hogging the Sear's catalogue, then you're on your own.

It's a radio collar. I cant recall all the particulars, but it seems the local wolf population has been breeding with the coyotes, hence the lean looking, but pretty big composite. I'm thinking the park wants to get a handle on the demographic, and sign them up to Sarah Palin's nomination.

My summer estate (read shack) lies near the edge of Algonquin Provincial Park, and there is an active campaign to keep wolves in the area. On particular evenings, the highway through the park is infested with well intentioned people who participate in a 'wolfhowl', led by one of the park naturalists. It's actually quite cool.

I take it you've never faced down a racoon?

If you're thinking he's looking for a snack. EERRNNHH! He's looking at dinner.

Bigger than you think, and he just swam across 2 km of lake. You is a 2 bite brownie.
