That is a state park about 15 miles from here. Same place I shot the butterfly pictures.
Them pigs in your backyard Ern?
Yup, they come for water I have out.
Their names are like, .....bacon bits, Jimmie Dean , McSausage, The Hamster, and Charlotte?
Some friends of mine moved to a new place and a week later she sent me a photo showing 12 deer and 18 turkeys in the driveway between the house and the barn. She named the deer, but his names were different than hers. Jerky, venison, hind quarter, lucky.
My house is in the middle of town and I have seen deer on the corner.
We get em in town too. Saw a doe and two fawns walking down a side street parallel to highway 101 which passes through town. Late afternoon and they were walking down the middle of the road, no hurry. There have been elk at the local downtown park. They only have to cross one major road, then over the side of the road past a few houses and streets, then down into the park.
I'm just two and a half miles from the center of downtown.
There's a dead fawn next to the road 1/2 mile away with a couple of vultures chowing down. It's getting a bit ripe. a couple hundred feet closer there's a tide gate between the slough and some fields. In the smaller slough there are a family of nutria doing whatever a family of nutrias do. There are geese in the fields and along the slough in the late summer through spring.
I can't imagine living in a larger city. We're a city of 16,000 connected to a city of 9,000, but it's spread out a lot.
We had a cougar in the south part of town last summer.
We've had reports of them a couple of times the past 15 years, but I don't know if they were confirmed. There are large wooded areas everywhere between the ocean and the bay in town. More woods than houses and streets.
Separate names with a comma.
