Aren't they bold little rascals!!! I always see a racoon lying dead in the street, but not any in the yards. In Michigan the squirrels seem to be in the parks and get killed a lot on neighborhood streets with a lot of trees along the streets. I ran over one with the car and that tramatized me (could not help it): It ran right in front of me! I think I can deal with giving the "trick or treating squirrels" peanuts as opposed to the deer eating my lawn and invading my property. Rabies!! -- do they infect the dogs or cats outside, or are they arch enemies?

You're much more likely to see 'possums and armadillos in your yard (in addition to the raccoons). We even have an occasional feral hog.

I'm going to slap you ever time you scream!!". Funny... she stopped screaming. Just hire someone to slap you each time you do it - you'll get over it.
I am cracking up!!!! If that won't cure you, I don't know what other therapy would work!! Unless I move into a zoo!

We haven't mentioned the Field Mice, have we!! They are tiny darling little creatures that manage to sneak in your house and garage. I actually suprised one that was sitting in my oven. Thank heavens that I looked in it before I turned it on.

Lord have mercy!!! I have one that plays in the driveway under our cars. He is smart enough to elude the sticky trap. We changed the cheese to peanutbutter. He's probably lactose intolerant and allergic to peanuts. He shows up enough to say "here I am and there I go" -- loves hide and seek. He has "victimized" me enough that I hurry to get in my car and won't look down. What the heck do you think I would do if I saw a deer in my yard munching on shrubbery and daylillies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just call the bear. He'll chase the deer away.

Yep, we have bear here. At certain times of the year, you have to be a bit cautious.

The farmer who leases my place, also has a field in the Georgetown area of Savannah, and the people in the subdivisions bring their children out to protest his destruction of the field mouse habitat

GET OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We have vacant lots in our subdivisions that need to be cut (looks like a wheat field) that are discussed at the association meetings. The president of the association points at the golf club manager (golf course community) and he points at the property developer, who is responsible for cutting vacant lots. I have called on numerous occasions, but to no avail.The golf club manager came to my door thinking I had called him, but I said it was my neighbor. He said he is not responsible and cuts only certain lots and said call the city hall and they will charge the developer $350 to cut each lot. I said that to say "THE MICE ARE HAVING A FIELD DAY EVERYDAY" AND WE ARE ANGRY THAT THE MICE OWN THE VACANT LOTS!!!!
