Wildlife Encounters

Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

For those who are curious, coyote urine has a definite strong and musky smell. I soaked several rags and put them in key places. Hopefully this doesn't attract coyotes. X(

Does your wife know about this or is it intended as some kind of sexy surprise?
We're married. There are no sexy surprises. :disshame:

An animal in distress is heartbreaking; people laughing at it is infuriating.

I thought it was cruel as well, idiot swinging it like a stuffed toy. I haven't seen the rest of the video, I hope the raccoon is alright.

Spotted on a walk or can that be seen from your yard?

Im visting family in NY. There is a family of foxes in a burrow thst goes under my sister's driveway. They just run around all day. Those pics were taken at my mom's old place. They have been very difficult to get pics of. There's 4 pups or whatever they are called and two adults. The pups are quick to flee if you get too close.

That's fantastic. Baby foxes, btw, are kits.

The Boss' sister lives on a farm in Saskatchewan and has a reputation for taking in any and all strays, which neighbours take advantage of. A few years ago, a neighbour brought her an orphaned baby coyote. He fit right in with all the other animals, slept indoors at night, caused no more problems than the dogs. His first spring once he was an adult, he took off and they haven't seen him since. Just an adorable little bugger.

Beautiful animals. Have always had a family of foxes (or families) round the back garden and they are always a joy to behold. Broke my heart a couple of years ago when a local newsletter dropped through the letterbox and one of the lead stories was the fox "problem" in the area. None as far as I'm concerned. Though still plentiful, i have noticed a significant drop off in numbers past couple of years, i initially attributed this to covid as people were home and spending more time in their gardens but there's still no sign of a pick up and feeling quite sad about that.

Edit: i obviously am referring to foxes as don't have coyotes round these parts just yet!

Yup. I understand how foxes can be a problem—like any wildlife, really—but they are so utterly beautiful and doglike enough that it's impossible for me not to be wholly enchanted.
