Default Hey PETA, Screw Wildlife

Apparently you chose to live on land where there has been wildlife and
you expect them to just move out because you are here?? It's you who
has invaded their domain. They really are not aware of property
lines. You seem to appreciate looking at them from a distance. Why
don't you just move back to the city and watch the animals in the
zoo? Leave the wildlife alone. They were thre first.

Vladimir think you are enviro-nutcake tree hugger, care more about
animal and tree than human. Original poster say that area has lots of
woods, etc. for shelter, living space. No need to encroach on
humans, to tear apart furniture. What does that have to do with
getting food and surviving? Crazy turkey, crazy deer. If human being
tried to live under your deck or violate space of person planting
flowers, you would be on phone in no time calling policemans.

RACCOONS: dig up the old lady's annual flower garden, **** all over
the decks, and tear up the cushions on deck furniture. =A0Why? =A0On thre=

sides of this property, there are woods, farmland, ponds, and streams
.... a wildlife paradise; yet they sometimes get on the roof and try
to access the house. =A0Why? =A0Yes, I'll anti-freeze them and don't care
who likes it.

WOODCHUCKS: are even worse digging burrows near the east side property
line, but at least they have an excuse with the row of mulberry trees
that defines that property line. =A0Still, it's a bitch dodging the
burrows on the tractor. =A0I set a record this year by killing seven of
them, two of whom while they were mating on -- believe it or not --
Valentine's Day. =A0Heh.

WHITETAIL: deer can be dangerous, especially in autumn. =A0One decided
to live under a deck. =A0He had an injured leg. =A0He had absolutely no
fear and would approach the old lady while she played in the perennial
flower garden. =A0Shotgun blasts did not scare him. =A0One day while on a
deck, I dropped a 10 lb. barbell plate on him. =A0He was quick enough to
dodge it but he finally got the message. =A0He spent a few days down
below by the pond but then disappeared.

WILLIE THE WILD TURKEY: adopted us one summer. =A0He terrorized the
cats, attacked his own reflection in auto bumpers, and slept on the
roof, even in thunderstorms. =A0The only good thing about Willie was
that he exterminated most of the cricket population.

ASSORTED SMALL BIRDS: attack their reflections in windows and really
create a mess. =A0This year, a robin, last year, a lady cardinal, the
year before that, a song sparrow.

Still, some wildlife is enjoyable. =A0Young turkey vultures are friendly
and inquisitive while you work outside. =A0Their parents demonstrate a
high degree of surgical skill extracting a brain from a deceased
woodchuck or raccoon through the decedent's eye sockets. =A0Interesting
to observe. Then there were the pheasants strutting and eating a ton
of bugs but they suddenly and mysteriously disappeared 20-25 years
