I just happened to look out a window and noticed a bunch of javelina sleeping in the shade of the eaves of our house just to the right of our front porch as you approach our front door.. Of course I got my camera and started taking video. It was extra cool as there were two babies with the squadron!!! There is a sub-text here. My friends Lisa and Leda were visiting and had wanted to see the javelina very badly. On this day, they had taken a trip to Bisbee and Tombstone to look around. I sent Lisa a text with a picture of all the javelina sleeping next to the house. She said she was on her way back and asked me to keep the javelina here so she could see them. I told her I could not promise the javelina would be here when she got back, but that they were currently sleeping. To make a long story short, they made it back in time to see the javelina from just a couple of feet away through the window. Shortly after they got back, our pool guy showed up as he does every Monday, but we did not expect him on Memorial Day. He did not see the javelina until he pulled up in front of the house at which point the javelina got up and started going around the west side of the house to leave. This gave an opportunity to take a bit more video over the fence. I took the first video of the javelina on this day at 12:21 and the last one at 4:49, so the javelina were around for more than 4 hours!!! I hope you enjoy the video!!!

They don't seem ta want to tear up your gardens, Bart, they sense you're friendly to them, so they don't fear hanging out in your yard or even sleeping in your yard. Excellent! Keep up the good work, another amazing wildlife video.

I would say to not really fear them, but respect that they are a wild animal that could hurt you or kill your dog. In respecting them, keep your distance and do NOT feed them. Other than that, enjoy seeing them when that happens. If you find yourself to be too close, just back away while facing them, and when you are far enough away, turn around and walk the other way. That just worked for me this morning when I unexpectedly came across one in my driveway as I was leaving for a walk.
