wow imagine having a bear in the garden, usually people are worried about rats!


We don't have to worry about rats, just moose, deer, fishers and bear. We've never (to my knowledge) had coyotes around, but they are in our area.

In our (Kansas) yard, we don't have rats, moose, fishers, or bears. On the four-footed front, we make do with voles, woodchucks (groundhogs), armadillos, raccoons, o'possums, deer, coyotes, foxes, and cottontail rabbits. Oh, and, the snapping turtles that wander up from the creek.

Bogie hasn't, for a while, mentioned the wonderful variety of avian life that she and her Wonderful Spouse see in their yard. Our avian friends include wild turkey. Hunky Husband watched a flock of over 20 of them visit us just after our recent *woo-hoo* one-inch snow. The turkey pretty well trampled everything between our patio and the back woods.


I forgot about the huge snapper that WS and the neighbor had to corral up and take for a ride back to the pond on Audubon land.

We didn't mind so much that it was in our yard as we were worried about the dogs being stupid and getting curious about the turtle. Now that we have the fence, we don't have to worry about it and would let the turtle wander to it's hearts content.
