    Agouderia, remind me not to mess with the foxes in your area -- taking on a 25 pound boar, even it is young? Fierce! But indeed odd to find that so close in to the city core.

    Interesting--I'm not sure I've ever seen a live snail outdoors. But on our Gulf beaches, it is pretty easy to find shells like this:

    I think they're called moon snails, but I've never seen one of the shells with a snail still inside it.


    People think our gators are bad, but at least they (mostly) stay in or near water. I'd be terrified to meet up with a bear or wild boar in the yard, even if it was a little one!

    I second this--there's just something about them; it's always a feel-good moment to see one. Although I like to keep my distance from the snapping variety.

    Living in the city, this is about as wild as we get to see. He (?) and his equally sleek sibling were ambling through our yard the other morning. We're guessing that mamma kicked them out and that they are roaming around, looking for their own territory, but we could be wrong.

    One or two might make it back but the rest in that pic I'm afraid will pay the ultimate price for pooping on us! Happy duck season y'all. :eek:

    Based on the number of those geese that are back here each Spring, y'all either aren't trying hard enough, need better aim, or maybe a guide to which kind of bird you are shooting at ;-)

    Here in northeast GA we have a large population of deer I have counted 14 in my yard at once. Had a bear get in my garbage every night for a couple weeks found out bears don't like pepper so I poured some black pepper on the top my garbage and after a few nights the stopped coming around. We have lots of snakes here I've killed about 5 copperheads in the past 2 years learned from my dad to roll a golf ball in egg put it in the shell and place it in the yard will kill snakes
