My pet opposume bit me and we had to put it to sleep shoot it because it had rabies.  Then I had to get a bunch of shots to my stomach.  Then I realized you should not have opposumes for pets they make much better soup.

Circa late 1980's. Had a Bull Mastiff in our neighborhood that used to sleep in the middle of the yard. A volkswagen beetle hit it. The dog stood up, looked at it, and walked away. The beetle had to be towed.


Also used to live by a canal and neighborhood dogs would frequently disappear due to crocs.

I know a guy who keeps big containers of dog food out in his pole shed, and raccoons are a problem for getting into the containers and absoultely chowing down on the stuff.  ANyway, one night we came across a couple of them sniffing around so he ran back into his house to get a .22 pistol.  It took 4 or 5 shots to finally kill this one raccoon that climbed up to the rafters of the shed, including a couple of head shots.  I guess even when you shoot them in the head, the chances of hitting their pea-size brains ar pretty slim.

My old cat Fido (RIP Fido), used to walk around on the stair railings.  The railing was about 3 inches wide and Fido, get this, Fido could turn around on the railing and walk the other way.

Fido would also hangout outside sometimes and whore around (as my mom used to say) down in the sewer.  What always astounded us was that Fido could jump out of the street sewer.  He could make the 3-4 ft. jump through the 4/5 inch gap out of the sewer.

Amazing cat, that Fido.

Had a Cocker spanial, who must have been mildely Fake Sugar Dick (WARNING, NOT THE REAL SUGAR DICK!).  He was run over 3 times but did not die (the 4th time did him in)  These were all seperate occations.  One time he was run over buy a cattle trailer on a very sandy road and then walked home, which was about 3 miles away.  He laid in our garage for 3 days, then got up and seemed fine. 
He also one time was so excited to see us when we got home he ran head first into the basketball goal post, and knocked himself out.  This same dog had a chunk of his nose taken out when he stuck his head into a badger hole.  He also got his tounge stuck to a barbed wire fence while trying to lick ice sickles, 3 times.  When he was run over the final time he was about 17 years old.

Was walking in New York with this girl named Daryl. Hilarious right? Anyways a pigeon (I didn't even know they could fly above 5 feet legally) totally shat right on her forehead and a little on the top. We were just strolling along and she lets out this blood curling scream. Everyone on the block looks over - I jump. Anyways, she starts going at her hair trying to swipe it away for about 15 seconds then totally looks up in the sky to see if the pigeon was still there.

I was like :surprised:  :lol:  "what do you think he's just floating there like a helicopter looking down on you right now, just totally staring at you to make sure you got the message? :lol:"

I was golfing once in college at the Stagg Hill Golf Course.  Drove the ball off the #4 tee box, grabbed my bag and headed down the fairway, walking of course.  As I was approaching the green and heading up that slight incline I came across what at first appeared to be a stick.  As I got closer I realized that I wasn't looking at a stick, in fact it was a snake- a poisoness one!  It was a copperhead.  I walked up close to the copperhead, who shall remain nameless, and took a closer look.  His jaw was mangled and it appeared as though someone the group in front of us hit it over the head with one of their clubs.  That copperhead had eaten its last meal as it appeared his jaws would no longer function correctly.

note for Fake Sugar Dick (WARNING, NOT THE REAL SUGAR DICK!) posters.  killing an animal, no matter how stupid the reason you have to do so, isn't an amazing story.

QFT.  weirdos. 


Well just how many head shots from a .22 could a human withstand?  Hint: it's less than a racoon, hence amazing.

Anyway, my parents had this big fat black cat originally named "Alvin", who apparently went through some sort of feline legal name change to "Bud Man".  Bud looked like a slow, fat turd but when it came to chasing down birds this dude could run and jump higher than any cat you've seen.

Was playing golf with some guys from the firm at this country club in the Shenandoah foothills. While one guy's lining up an approach shot off the fairway, this fox trotted out of the woods and headed straight for him and his buddy's cart. They start freaking out as it gets closer and shows no signs of slowing down, so we yell for them to whack it with a club. The dude's panic and yell back "What club?" As if it matters what club!  :lol:

My childhood animal stories could fill up a whole book, and I mostly have my Mom to thank for that.

A little background info: My mother has a master's and works as a child psychologist, but she also has a degree from K-State in wildlife biology, which she never used, and her first love is animals.

It helps to know this to understand why my mom decided to volunteer "part- time" as a wildlife-rehabilitator when I was growing up, resulting in a pretty much constant influx of random animal species in our house. These would range from the pretty healthy and normal ones to the badly injured/sick or permanently scarred and messed up in the head ones.  :bang:

I remember we once had ferrets in our basement that smelled god-awful and would entertain me and my friends by their amazing ability to poop a perfectly round little nugget literally every 20 seconds all day long. We also had like 6 baby squirrels one time and we built them a sweet cage with sticks and ropes and they used to run around it like crazy  :runaway: playing adorable baby squirrel games until they'd all pass out, :zzz: then they'd wake up and start again. :runaway: :runaway:

We also had quite a few not so normal animals. We had two hamsters that we ended up keeping as pets that my mom had identified as both girls. Until one morning a couple years later when we came downstairs and there were 17 or 18 newborn hamsters squirming around. My Mom, shocked and bamboozled, searched both hamsters thoroughly but never could find any trace of a penis, as could anyone else, including a family friend and local veterinarian, who remarked after searching long and hard, "It. just. isn't. there.  :surprised:

Just as unbelievable was the amount of babies that were born, which the veterinarian informed us was, by all acounts, the most him or Bob (his vet friend) "had ever seen, as far as they could recollect."  :surprised:

Yes, something was surely amiss here. The pieces of the puzzle just did not fit. We had no answers, and, of course, no penis .

But if only we knew what TRULY MIND-BLOWING HAMSTER EVENTS were to take place in the very near future, we probably would have been confused, and super grossed-out............ IT WAS THAT CRAZY.

But we didn't know. We couldn't of known. :embarrassed: :eek: :runaway:



To be continued...  :popcorn:

One time, my dad's friend was driving home from work late a night, when a deer jumped out in front of him. He hit it, and then decided he wanted to keep it. He got out of the car to claim his prize, to discover it was not dead, just badly injured. He went to his truck to get his knife, but it wasn't there. Nor was his gun. So he got his tire iron and spent the next 30 minutes beating it to death.

The End

i spent several minutes trying to figure out how to kill a carhit pronghorn once.  finally decided on bashing it's head in with a shovel, but it recovered enough to limp off into the desert before i could get back to it with the shovel.  pretty fast for a dying animal.

another time i put a wounded deer in my pickup bed (w. shell) and tried to take it to a vet.  it stayed quiet and alive for most of the trip, but about 5 miles out of town tried to stand up and escape.  did lots of bouncing around.  then quieted back down enough by the time we had to go through a military checkpoint (lots of questions).  almost as soon as we got through, we checked him and he'd died.  tried to give the body to the soldiers, but they weren't as enthused as you'd think.

  • Roomiez in college had ferrets.  One of them(Sebastian) knew how to play fetch, and my bro was tossing the little ferret toy around one night until it got bored or most likely got the cheezy scent of a cheeto and went to investigate underneath the recliner.  My friend sat up while the great Cheeto investigation was underway and severed Sebastians head from the rest of his body.  A ferret, while small, will spew blood. NO lie
Reminded me of a cat story.   When I started driving, my first car was a '75 buick skylark.  In the fall & winter all of the cats would crawl up onto the engine block to stay warm.   My cat, garfield, (cat rough ridin' loved lasagna) was apparently sitting on the fan cowling.  When I started the car, fur came flying out the sides of the hood.  I ran inside screaming & crying because I had the cat for like 10 years.   5 minutes later I came out to go bury him.  As I lifted the hood, his head popped up with this dazed & confused look on his face and he just started meowing like, WTF was that?  He had this enormous patch of fur missing from his head and hind leg.  But he lived for a couple more years beyond that.  I never had a farm cat live longer than him and he was awesome.   He followed me everywhere.

I once accidentally locked my cat in the hall closet all night and Chicat and JHGD rescued it. 

I laugh at this story every time.

:confused:

post-touche`?

Yup, JG was looking for bedding.

I can't believe no one is impressed by my peacock story. How many of you douches had peacocks in your neighborhood?

We had peacocks in our neighborhood.  The little fucks would run around the damn place and then make a point to crap on our back patio.  Tried leaving out poison birdseed to get rid of them, tried to trap them, finally had enough and just shot one.  The rest didnt come back.

Once some buddies and I caught a snapping turtle and named it Mertle The Turtle.  (We're all extremely smart and original)  Anyway, Mertle REALLY liked hanging out in the back of my friend's pickup.  Then my friend hit a bump on a country road and the tailgate fell open.  It was then that we found out Mertle liked gravel roads racing below him at 60 mph even more than he liked the back of a pickup.  It was sad to see him fall and skid away.  I'll never forget the three hours Mertle graced us with his presence, enriching our lives for the duration.  You are missed Mertle, wherever you are.   :bawl:

I was over at a friend's house this weekend, and they once had a momma raccoon build a nest for her young 'uns in their chimney.  When a guy came to cap the chimney, the momma raccoon scratched her way through most of the roof trying to her babies.

Bear spray? Did you have your bear whistle with you too?   I can imagine you pulling a little bottle out of your fanny pack and trying to hit the bear in the eyes with a tiny little stream of spray while he rips your limbs off and eats your face.

Friend - Hey look there's a bear, we should get outta hear

Me - No problem, I put on my bear spray this morning he won't even bother us.

Friend - Bear spray why didn't you give me any?

Me - Sorry bro, didn't ask.

When I was a kid we had an English Setter named Chip.  One day Chip ran away.  He didn't go far.  We lived on a dead-end and there was a huge empty lot next to our house.  We would see Chip hanging out in the lot but he would always run away before we got to him.  Like 6 months later my dad and brother caught him and brought him back home.  He picked up some amazing skills while he was away...he became really fast and could jump up and sit on our privacy fence.  A couple years later he had a brain anuerism (sp?) and died.  The end.

It's not fake. All the footage has been verified real. There's some rumor about the crew that filmed it using a trained eagle or weakened goats, maybe but that sounds kinda doubtful.

definitely looks like a trained eagle.  also the second animal is dead before the eagle grabs it and drops it.  the resolution is pretty shitty, so it's hard to tell what the animals are.  the first looks like maybe a spanish or alpine ibex, but could possibly be a wild-pattern domestic goat.  the second looks like a chamois, maybe.  both are juveniles (hornless, even adult females are horned), so they aren't as big as you might assume.

Turns out it footage from an old Spanish wildlife series.  The goat was dead an the scene staged but it's a wild eagle.  Guess the director was outed as having staged lots of scenes for his shows, including throwing capybaras into schools of paranhas.  (Totally spacing on the spelling of that fish here...)

the first animal is definitely alive.  and there is no way the eagle was wild.  absolutely none.

Just google that crap.  Bunch of stuff of about some Hombres something or other series.  Not sure about live goat or wild eagle, but definitely staged.

definitely staged.

yeah, no crap.  pretty much all but the very biggest budget nature films are staged.  you try wandering randomly around w. a camera and see how long it takes you to film an animal doing something youtubeable.

I bet this guy would have had a great story...

Quote
PORT ANGELES, Wash. | Rangers in Washington state suspect an encounter with a mountain goat killed a hiker in Olympic National Park.
The park service says Robert H. Boardman, 63, of Port Angeles was hurt Saturday near the park’s Klahhane Ridge and died hours later at a Port Angeles hospital. Officials said an early investigation indicates they were caused by an encounter with a goat.

Rangers tracked down and killed the goat. A veterinary pathologist will analyze it.

not sure what is more unbelievable...a goat killing a man, or the fact that they tracked the bastard down and killed it.

About a month ago, my cat went missing.  Turns out, dad put some rat poison (or something) in the yard to "keep out the squirrels."  Rumblings around the Dlew household are that kitty got into said poison (or something).

That cat sucked anyways though.  New cat is way better.

Why is it so hard to catch a bird/squirrel with a trap made of a milk crate with a stick propping up one end with a string tied to the stick while you wait and hide behind a tree like 20 ft away?  Seems like this should work a lot of the time.

When I was younger, I had a baby raccoon named Carlton ( <------ FPOBA fan).

Anyway, we would feed Carlton sugar cubes.  Turns out raccoons clean their food in water before eating it.  So Carlton would just sit there spinning that sugar cube in the water until it was totally dissolved!  It was literally the cutest thing in the entire world.  :love:

Carlton was one amazing  :raccoon:

JUST LIKE JURASSIC PARK). someone must have cut the power. crap. now i become tense. i see him dart across the room in a blur. he's circling. just then he jumps up from behind me. clever girl (actually a boy in this situation). he then proceeds to get petted. i scan the house real quick seeing if how much disaster has struck by the mouth of a 10 month old crazed puppy. nothing. its quiet. too quiet. i walk through the house. searching for shredded paper. torn couches. nothing.  :dunno:  :ohno:

I threw it in the trash and washed my hands (TWICE!)

Just wanted others to be on the lookout for worms, they might be starting to break into people's houses or something.

Anyone have any good squirrel related stories?

Mrs. ETP and I bought a few pumpkins and mums for the front porch. Three days later two of the pumpkins have been eaten through and the mums destroyed. Borrowed a squirrel trap from my neighbor and have caught one, but still have about six more to go.

How can I keep the squirrels off the pumpkins/mums? Best food to put in squirrel trap?

also, the competition restarts every spring and goes until the fall where they apparently call it off for the winter months and then restart again in the spring. i mean, what do you even say to that? also, pretty strange about that caterpillar story of mine, huh? i mean, just flat out disappeared.

my best friends grandma lives in topeka. i happened to run into her two years ago and we talked for a while. "how are you, haven't seen you in a while" kind of stuff. she then proceeds to tell me that she has an ongoing competition with a neighbor of hers over who can shoot the most squirrels and how it wasn't much of a competition because she was beating the guy something like 16 to 5 or something.

do you have the grandma's phone number? is she for hire?

TRUE ANIMAL STORY!:

While getting dressed this morning, I noticed an earthworm on the floor in the middle of my bedroom.  I thought it was a rubberband hair thingie that mrs. ok_cat or baby ok_cat dropped(it was dark in the room).  I picked it up, and it was worm-y feeling. 

I threw it in the trash and washed my hands (TWICE!)

Just wanted others to be on the lookout for worms, they might be starting to break into people's houses or something.

Similar thing happened to me earlier this year.  Raining really hard outside and I got up about 6am.  I flip on the living room light and see this sonuvabitch:

(http://i101.photobucket.com/albums/m71/sgt_corey/IMG00005-20100513-0617.jpg)

I tossed it outside, and grabbed a pic real quick.  Still have no idea how it got inside.  Can they pick locks?

So I'm dog sitting this week for my bro-in-law.  Last night the dog-cousin got into my wife's cat's food.  I come home for lunch today and I find a warm and runny present on the bedroom floor.  So I start to clean it up.  When I finish that I "find" a second deposit on the living room floor that she left while I was cleaning up the first mess.  And when I say "find" I mean stepped in it and unknowingly spread the magic into the kitchen.

COLMAN, S.D. - A 150-pound mountain lion was no match for a squirrel-chasing terrier on a farm in eastern South Dakota.
Jack the Jack Russell weighs only 17 pounds, and yet he managed to trap the cougar up a tree on Tuesday.
Jack's owner, Chad Strenge, told The Argus Leader that the dog "trees cats all the time," and that the plucky terrier probably "figured it was just a cat."
Professor Jonathan Jenks, who tracks cougar migration patterns, says hunters usually need two or three hounds to chase a lion up a tree. He says the cat probably wasn't hungry enough to attack Jack.
Strenge used a shotgun to knock the mountain lion from the tree and - assisted by Jack - chased and fatally shot it.
Arden Petersen, of the wildlife division of Game, Fish and Parks, told The Madison Daily Leader that no charges will be filed.

When I was but a young lad, I had a juvenile barbary macaque climb up on my shoulders because it was inquisitive about a plush macaque toy that I was holding (this was at gibraltar, they sell the toys in the gift shops).  Anyways, he soon became disinterested in the toy and proceeded to see if I had any tasty bugs on my head.  Things were ok (I was a little bit freaked out) until the mother found out that one of her babies was missing and became pretty upset I had, to the best of her knowledge, kidnapped her baby.  To make a long story short, I almost lost a finger.

When I was young I had two coonhounds-  Little Ann and Old Dan.  One time, while out coonhunting, we came across a mountain lion!!  Little Ann and Old Dan fought off the mountain lion!  Sadly, Little Ann died from her injuries sustained during the fight.  I guess Old Dan lost the will to live after Ann died because he died of a broken heart a short while later.  It was cool though, because I soon discovered a colony of monkeys living in the woods behind my house.  Turns out the escaped from a circus train that had derailed.  What an awesome summer that was!

I don't know, this dog is pretty small and non-vicious.  the rabbit/squirrel combo could probably take him.

The other day my wife asked me to kill a wasp that was over by the back door. So I took off one of my flip-flops and went over there and looked around but didn't see it. I told her it was gone and she went and looked and said it was still there, right in the corner. It was, and it turns out I was standing with my head like an inch away from it the whole time I was looking.  :horrorsurprise:

i was walking to get dinner last night and took a shortcut through the forest.  about halfway through the forest, i came across a polar bear.  he was lost and looked sad.  i took him by the paw and walked him to a shortcut that leads from the wold directly to the artic circle.  fortunately for him i didn't take him to the shortcut i know in the forest that goes to antartica.

before he left on his way, he pulled out his flute and played me the most beautiful melody.  his favorite dish is spaghetti and meatballs and i'm going to cook him some this weekend and send them to him.  we are now friends.

My old man has fabricated wire mesh screens around some sunflowers and bean vines that he has around his covered deck.  They sheild the sun in the summer and create a nice little canopy.  The chipmunks and rabbits really mess with them so he's hooked these mesh screens up to an electric fence current.  He is now baiting them with nuts to test the screens and plans on placing one of his trail cams or a small video camera to record the mayhem.  I may have youtube video at some point.

currently getting a new roof   :gocho:  and heard chirps coming from an overhang last night.   I got a ladder and found a small hole where some of the wood had rotted away about the size of a baseball.  Listened closely and sure enough there were baby birds chirping.  I broke the hole open large enough to get my hand in there and a bird flew out.  Feeling around I could feel a big nest and I knew that my decking was going to get replaced and the nest would likely get destroyed.   I took a hanging plant pot & moved the nest along with 4 blind/bald/ugly baby birds to the hanging pot so that they wouldn't get killed during today's roof installation.  The mother bird couldn't find them because they went to sleep & weren't chirping; I was afraid that I fated them to a cold starving death by moving the nest.  Last night around 10:00 I went to check and the mother still hadn't come back, so I brought them inside from the cold so they wouldn't freeze to death.   As they warmed up, they chirped a bit, & went to sleep so I locked up the family dog and let the baby birds sleep inside on the Kitchen table.   This morning, I woke up around 6:00 to starving baby birds chirping so I put them back outside hoping their mother would find them.

By 6:15, their bellies were on their way to being full with both the mother & father bird cranking away at finding bugs/worms/whatever and they are now safely hiding away from danger in a hanging plant pot with the mother close by.  I was going to take pictures of them, but didn't think of it when I had them down.

Also, the whole "mothers will reject baby birds if you've handled them is bullshit.

speaking of birds...

Yesterday my family and I went to the YMCA for my two oldests swimming lessons.  When we got back I realized my wife had left the back door wide open  :shakesfist:.  Well about 10 minutes after we get back my wife screams from inside the kids room "There's a bird in the house."  I went in and sure enough a finch was flying from window to window trying to figure out how to get out of the house.  I got a sheet that was on the floor of the room and was going to catch it to release to the back yard but the kids had discovered the bird and running around laughing and yelling.  So the bird was freaking out, it bounced off of a couple of windows and then went into the kitchen where it sat in the Kitchen sink.  But just as I was about to cover it with my makeshift net.  It flew behind the fridge.  Then it found it's way out to the back door and flew away.  I'm sure it is one of the many birds that hang out on the bird feeder that I have not filled for a while due to the weather being nice.  He was probably looking for my bird seed stash.

I know it was not as good of a story as HB's but I think it was a funny animal story.

Got a woodpecker problem. The son of a bitch pounds on my metal chimney top at about 7 am almost every morning. Rattles through my whole house. I can almost ignore it, but my Lab however can not. CAN NOT!!!!  He is terrified of the noise. He jumps up in the bed and shakes in terror. It is the damnedest thing. I mean, he is a furrocious beast that eats burglars all the time, but woody (I named him woody) turns him into one of SD's cat pics. I bought an owl, Hooter (fake but I named him Hooter anyway), but Woody isn't afraid. Should I get a real owl?  Where do you get real owls?

you should consider establishing a falcon habitat near the chimney.  i have zero knowledge in how to do this or if it works but limestone and others (iirc) should be able to help out.

This seems like I bad idea.  If it was made out of wood, wouldn't it attract even more woodpeckers?  My dog would kill himself.

BB gun, 6am wakeup call, and a decent view of your chimney top from no more than 60-75ft away.  should resolve the prob.

Woodpecker update:

Woody has moved his pecking up an hour to 6am.  He has also shifted to only weekend pecking.  He isn't doing it as long now.   :pbj:  Dog still terrified, but not as much.  I am thinking about keeping the woodpecker.

:dunno: Didn't know their were different kinds. Stay away Sys, I am keeping him.  His current routine is acceptable, but I will let you know if it changes.  If Woody reverts back to his old ways...  :shakesfist:

On another note, Someone asked Mrs. SF last night what kind of cat we had.   :confused:  I had no idea how to answer that question.  I mean, its just a cat, you know.

Whenever I take my dog on runs he always manages to hold his crap in until the worst possible moment when someone is outside tending to their lawn. Went on a 5 mile run with the little bastard yesterday, he ran for 3 miles, and the first house I get to where someone is outside he immediately squats. He does this almost every time. Anyways, that's my story.

My dog woke me up barking this morning - and when I went down stairs to shush her I saw a cat sitting in my front yard.  I went outside to scare it off and  there was fur everywhere.  I went to inspect the area and there was a squirrel laying on it's side trying to get away from me - looked like it got hit by a car & had a broken leg.  I got some leather gloves & moved the squirrel to a fenced in yard under some bushes so that the cat would hopefully not be able to find it.  When I came home from work today - the squirrel was gone. I assume the cat got it.

GO CATS!!! :lynchmob:

Hilarious every time, except for DSF (Dog Stupid Fitz).  CSF also likes to do the sideways hop attack leading into the lunge and both cat arms around dog neck and bite technique.  DSF has not developed any type of defense for this.

Last time I took DSF to the vet, the vet asked him to shake to get his cookie.  DSF kept trying to shake with his left hand and the vet kept pulling the treat back.  I kept watching as I was wondering how long it was going to take for DSF to get pissed.  Finally I had to step in and tell the DA vet to hold out his right hand if he wanted DSF to shake that hand.  I mean, it all worked out in the end but DSF gave him the stink eye on his way out and we talked about how stupid the vet was the whole way home.

Similar story, I smoke and I always like to smoke outside to keep my house from smelling like crap..

Anyway, so I have this toad that sits out there under the flood lights of the garage, you know, eating bugs and what not as they fly around the light.. I'll sit there and watch him snatch those bugs up and sometimes I'll toss junebugs or beetles and slow crap that I can catch with minimal effort(There are MILLIONS of effing bugs down here BTW, another reason the south sucks ass)..

Anyway, one night I was tossing him some beetles and stuff, the usual, and I was having fun doing this and kind of forgot what I was doing and my cigarette had burned all the way down to the filter.. It was still lit and had a huge cherry on it, but without thinking I just kind of tossed it on the ground like usual.. Well, the dumbass toad thought it was another bug  and gulped the LIT cigarette down !!!

Oh man, he was pissed after that.. I thought he'd try to spit it out but nah, he just kind of hopped/waddled around in pain for a minute and then was cool..

the windows over the back of our office overlook a lake where a bald eagle lives.  if you look down you can see the roof of the first two stories that jut out further than the upper floors.  what did steve dave see on the second floor roof the other day?  you guessed it, rabbit's head.  did the eagle eat it and leave the head there?  did the rabbit explode and it's head landed on the second floor roof?  these are mysteries that will never be solved.  unsolvable mysteries if you will.

The terrified feline raced across a road and climbed to the top of the Giant Saguaro Cactus in Arizona's Sonoran Desert, which is thought to be up to 300-years-old. The lion circled for a few minutes then left.

So I have 2 girl dogs now.  Both spayed.  The older dog mounts-up & tries to hump the younger one like a boy dog would. We catch her trying to do this 2-5 times a day. I totally support their relationship, btw. Just curious if this happens lots or if this is an amazing scientific discovery (lesbian puppy dogs).  Only animal expert types need to reply, tia.

My parents have two girl dogs, both spayed. One mounts the other one about the same amount as yours does.

Was an owl sitting on the power lines outside my house last week. I sat and watched it for like a half hour. It's so funny how they turn their heads. Then it took off after this squirrel. Not sure if the squirrel escaped or not.

Heard a bunch of crows going apeshit a couple nights ago. My wife was in our back yard and was all "holy crap...check this out!1!!1? There was an owl on my neighbor's roof getting attacked and dive bombed by about 8 crows. He was just sitting there like GTFOOMF. Then he just flew off. Not sure what he did, but they were PISSED.

This guy I know has a weener dog named Roscoe.  Roscoe quit pooping and this guy was concerned.  So he fed him some doggie lax and put the dog in an empty wading pool.  This went on for two or three days.  Feed dog, give him laxatives, and wait to see some piles of crap.  One day we were BSing by the doggie pool and Roscoe shoots a stream out his ass.  His owner was so happy for him till Roscoe waddles over there and licks it right up.  Well his owner immediately realizes what was going on all this time and pukes right there in front of me.   :barf:  I lol'd for a bit then felt a little qweezy myself.  I took Roscoe out of the pool cause his owner couldn't even look at him.  The little guy just strutted away happy as could be.  The guy never worried about his dog crapping again.

Not groundhog related, but I've had a few dogs chase me when I am out for a run. I try to maintain my pace and ignore them, but I have my fists clinched so I can knock 'em the eff out if they try to attack. (I know that probably won't work, but what else you going to do...out run a dog?)

7 years ago I went to Florida with my wife and her family. We went to a place called "Gatorland" or something like that.

Anyways, at the end of the gator show you could get your picture taken sitting on an alligator (a small one, with its mouth taped). I got in line, and quickly realized this was only for children, but the gator people didn't seem to care.

Well, this was kind of embarrassing for me as I was waiting there and seeing little 5 year old kids sit on the alligator to get their pictures taken, and I was contemplating how I was going to get my picture taken without crushing the thing.

My turn arrives, the alligator takes one look at me, and obviously thinks to him/herself "eff this" and runs away. Gator lady yells at me "GRAB IT!"

I grabbed its tail and drug it towards me like a seasoned baby alligator hunter, and got my photo op.

When I was a kid the bee hive that lived in our "big" red barn got too big or something.  So they made a new queen and split.  I wonder how they decide who goes and who stays.  Anyway, the new hive was down on it's luck or just plain stupid.  They gathered on a tree branch in one huge ball with the new queen in the center of it.  The ball-o-bees was about the size of a bowling ball.  Dad called our priest (who was also a bee keeper) and he came over in his regular black shirt and pants with just a hood and smoker thing for protection.  He cut the branch off and put it in a wooden box.  Then transported it back to his bee farm and gave us 5 quart jars of honey for them.   :lick:

I was outside on my back patio when I looked at the yard and saw two rabbits about 10 feet apart staring at each other.  One started charging the other one and at the last second the one being charged jumped over it.  Naturally, there was another staring contest for about 20 seconds then the same thing repeated.  This occurred probably 5-6 more times with the charging rabbit having no success (I mean seriously, it jumps every time.. just jump right before you get there and knock this bitch out).  Then on the last charge the jumping rabbit kicked the other rabbit going underneath it in it's dumb head knocking it out and the alpha rabbit took off.

A Florida teenager has lost his right arm below the elbow to an attacking alligator.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino told Fort Myers television station WBBH the teen's arm was still inside the 11-foot alligator when it was hunted down and killed Monday evening.

The television station reports 17-year-old Kaleb Langdale was rushed to a Fort Myers hospital but the arm couldn't be reattached.

Langdale was swimming in the Caloosahatchee River near Moore Haven when the attack occurred. A friend told ClickOrlando.com that he’s been around alligators his entire life and offered the gator his arm to avoid more serious injuries.

"He's smart enough to know that if he offers him (alligator) his arm, he’s not going to take his torso," Matt Baker, the friend said.

Rebecca Langdale, the teen's sister, said her brother took the gator by the chin "like he saw on TV a million times." He turned to swim and the alligator grabbed his arm.

"He knew once it grabbed his arm, he was going to lose it," she told The News-Press.com. "So he put both feet on the alligator’s head and pushed and pretty much took his own arm off before the alligator could."

This is a rare occurrence. I've been toe to toe with a gang of raccoons several times and they always back down without a fight. Basically raccoons talk a big game but they don't back it up.

Lets examine this "beat the crap out of 5 racoons by myself" situation.

At first I thought no way, then I remembered that Asava is an amazing soccer player who pretty much could of played in the world cup but wanted to go to KSU instead. I feel like you could send at least 2 raccoons to the moon with soccer kicks before the other 3 got to you. Then its just 1v3 and thats pretty easy

HOWEVER, if you were given some sort of stick, lets say....a softball bat...i think it might actualy hurt you. Instead of focusing on booting the first 2 coons into the upper atmosphere you would instead be trying to connect with pinpoint swings that would only send the coons dribbling 5 feet away from you. Eventually one would get you by the jugular and your done for.

as the only one here who has won a title in softball (evidenced by the old guys whining about being sore after softball in the beer league thread), i can safely say that base hits win you games. and thus, will win me the war against raccoons.

Quote
One summer night during my high school years, a few friends and I were playing a pickup basketball game on the hoop in my buddy Paul's uncle's driveway. So, we're out there playing and I'm standing at the top of the key with the ball, when all of a sudden I hear a quick buzzing sound next to my left ear and some sort of flying demon spawn tries to dive-bomb my ear canal. I lose my dribble as I'm swatting it away, the kid defending snatches the ball and turns around for the easy lay-up, I utter some profanities and think that's the end of it.

HOWEVAH, after the game has ended and we're all standing there talking, I suddenly feel something moving around inside of my left ear. I immediately have Paul get a flashlight from his uncle's house and have my buddies looking inside my left ear to see if there's a god damn bug in there. None of them can see anything, but every 2-3 minutes now, I feel something moving or flapping in there and start uncontrollably swatting at my ear.

After about 10 minutes I decide I have to go home and get my parents to drive me to the hospital, cause there's definitely something wrong. It's right at this point that the chick I work with comes out of her friend's house next door. She just happened to be over there, and she sees me and starts walking over to say hi. I proceed to chit-chat with her and endure a 30-minute conversation (which felt like it was 6 hours) with this thing moving around inside of my head, INCHING CLOSER TO MY BRAIN WITH EVERY PASSING SECOND, all while resisting the involuntary impulse to punch myself directly in the ear every time it starts moving.

Finally, the girl mercifully ends the conversation and I immediately hop on my bike and book it home, barge through my front door, and tell my dad he has to drive me to the hospital because there is a bug in my ear. You can imagine how that went over.

After subjecting me to a 15-minute long interrogation regarding whether or not I had taken drugs or had been drinking, all through which I was periodically swatting at my own head, my father finally agrees to drive me to the E.R. Upon admission, the attending physician takes a quick look inside my ear with that ear magnifying glass thingy, grabs some high pressure air/water blaster apparatus, and proceeds to fire it into my ear canal. Much to everyone's surprise (save me and the physician), out with the water comes a MASSIVE MOTH.

Mothzilla, I tell you. It was humungous. AND STILL ALIVE.

The physician squishes and kills the perp, laughs, and says to me, "You're the fifth one tonight." Ever since I have taken to immediately covering my ears any time a moth flies into a room, and am absolutely petrified of moths in general.

As a youth I went on several boy scout camp outs, one in particular still stands out.
One of the few rules of camp was no snacks and with my great luck I was paired with
a heavier boy. He ended up eating a whole bag of cheetos and DIDNT lick it off his fingers
or around his mouth. Needless to say later in the night I was woken by his screams because
a raccoon was sitting on his chest licking the crumbs off his face!  :horrorsurprise:

Two falls ago I was bird hunting and we kicked a bedded down buck/doe out of a plum thicket.  They ran a little ways and then he mounted her and started pelvic thrusting.  Was only about 75 yards away.  Felts gross after.

Got in the police blotter in Durango.  Not me per se but events that wouldn't have happened had I not been there.  Basically the local drug dealer stole a pistol from a genuine Texas Ranger we were partying with in our hotel room.  I remember the cops being all "you know you were partying with the local drug dealer right?" and I was all "if you know he's a drug dealer then why don't you arrest him?"  They didn't like that.

Your story makes it sound like you were partying with the Texas Ranger.

Once got offered a job in Durango and heard the town was terrible.  Once I moved elsewhere in colorado, everyone just tells me how awesome it is.

yeah, I've heard good things

Durango is pretty freaking awesome.  I would live there for Ska alone.

My Grandpa has lost two calves to what he believes to be a Montain Lion or Lions.  He has welded together a giant "Lion Trap" that he has set up in the woods near where one of the attacks took place.  I asked him yesterday what he was using for bait.  He said... "Cat Food".  I said... "Uhh... grandpa I'm no expert but I don't think you're going to catch a lion with cat food."  He looked at me for a bit and then said rather loudly... "It's a cat ain' it!" 

Stay tuned for pics or an obituary.    :popcorn:

Had to take a swing at a zebra while at the zoo yesterday. Me and the boys were getting a "behind the scenes" tour in the Fake African Savannah when I started petting a zebra. The idiot tried biting me and I instinctively tried punching him in the throat, but he ran away. Good thing too because my next move was a power kick straight to his balls and that wouldn't be good for anyone because I think zebras are endangered. The security guy saw it all go down and I got ejected from the zoo so now I'm busy trying to sue them.

I don't have a link to this story, just something that happened to a friend of mine when we both lived in Alabama.  My friend has two pitbulls and are some of the nicest dogs I have met.  One day, across the street, someone tried to break into a house and the alpha pitbull (Macy) jumped over my friend's fence and stopped the break in (another neighbor saw the person that broke in and called the cops).  The guy was arrested.  Macy simply sat in front of the entrance of the fence when my friend got home.

The cop said that it is illegal to have pitbulls in Lee County in Alabama.  However, he said he will look the other way because every neighbor said these dogs are the neighborhood watch dogs.  It was a nice story and thought I would pass it along.

That was my thought too.  The dog never attacked the man that broke in.  The pit bull, according to the neighbor that witnessed the whole thing, said Macy stood on the porch and barked repeatedly.  The thief couldn't leave the house.  Allegedly, the cop came and Macy instantly stopped barking.  I think it was amazing, but Macy has never attacked anybody (she did kill a rabbit about a month ago).

Fair enough.  Pit Bulls are strong dogs that have a brutal stigma attached to them.  I actually found another example of this type of behavior with Pit Bulls here http://www.piaberrend.org/stray-pit-bull-saves-woman-child-from-attacker/.  For every positive pit bull story, there are a dozen terrible ones and it's cool not to be comfortable with it.

You probably should. Would a beaver beat a wildcat up in a fight? No, but it would tear the rough ridin' arm off of a cornhusker that is for sure.

she didn't want to make my dad drive out to the country to free the serpent so she didn't tell him and figured she would wait till it died. of course, those things have a slow ass metabolism so it didn't die and has been stuck on the porch for a week, dragging that thing around and eating bugs when it can. i don't know if she has told my dad yet, i'm hoping so for the snake's sake.  :crossfingers:

My parents have four domestic ducks that live on their pond. Turns out one of them is a female and the three male ducks have been raping the bejesus out of her lately. One of them actually held her head under water while his buddy raped her. I guess ducks live tough lives.

most animals will eat meat if given a chance.  ground squirrels eat quite a few insects and it's not at all unusual for them to consume vertebrates.

REALLY LONG STORY WITH LOTS OF WORDS

my senior year of high school, just setting in Mrs. Cross' spanish clas when all the girls started screeching. I catch a glimpse of a furry squirrel (from here on known as dickhead) running around under the desks. Being a quick thinker, I shut the door so he couldn't escape and have the teacher hand me an empty computer paper box. I casually corner dickhead and put the box over him. Then i rip ripped the corner of the lid and slide it under the box. Boom, I have a trapped dickhead.

My buddy and me take dickhead out in the hallway in his box and proceed to the locker hall which is lockers on one, windows on the other. I hand my buddy dickhead in a box and proceed to open the window. This following detail is important for later: the window is not the regular sliding kind that goes horizontal or vertical but rather the kind that you twist a handle to unlatch it and then pull it towards you and it vents up and in, in a v shape. So I open the window and right as my buddy is getting ready to lower the box to the vent, the end of period bell rings. THIS IS WHERE THINGS GO WRONG FOR BOTH ME AND DICKHEAD.

The loud noise turns dickhead into the tasmanian devil from the cartoons and he unleashes hell on his temporary transportation device. He knocked the box off from the lid and proceeds to fall right on my arm, with my hand still holding onto the window handle. Dickhead locks eyes with mine for a moment and we both knew this was going to end poorly. He starts digging his nutgrabbing claws in my arm and I start to shake it. He loses grasp and goes airborn only to latch his teeth onto my right thumb on the way down. At this point, i hold my hand up thumb down about a foot in front of my face and look in amazement. As i start to shake my hand a little bit to see if he'd let go, that's when I see the blood running down my arm, turning from a drip to stream off the point of my young trampy elbow.

Sreams, I slowly look around and everyone had filed out into the locker hall at this point and are standing in a semi cirle staring on in wild eyed amazement. This adds fuel to the fire for both dickhead an me. I lower my hand to my knees and start banging dickhead against the radiator underneath the window. Dickhead still there. I raise my hand above my head and start a dickhead helicopter but he must have stowed away on a carnival tilt-a-whirl once because it doesn't phase him. Once again i lower him down to my knees and proceed to kick the crap out of dickhead but HE WILL NOT LET GO. Almost out of options, I have one more trick up my sleeve for dickhead.

I lower my hand down to right above the window so that dickhead will be crushed when I close the window. Slam dickhead in the window and he lets out a little moan but isn't done. So I just rapid fire open and close the window on dickhead until at last, he lets go of my finger and falls onto the grass outside.

At this point, I've noticed it has grown extremely quiet. I turn around and can best describe the landscape as a jackson pollock painting with my own blood. It's on the floor, the windows, the lockers and even some of the ashen-faced onlookers who are staring with mouth agape. So I grab my wrist and apply pressure and walk towards the nurses office while the crowd before me opens like the red sea.

Once the nurse gets it cleaned up and the bleeding stopped it becomes apparent that dickhead had bitten entirely though my thumb. She was worried that it had rabies because it attacked me and I tried to explain that it was frightened and felt threatened and was just being a squirrel. She won out and animal control was called. I was asked where the squirrel was and said walk outside until you see the window with all the blood on it, then look down. I was told dickhead wasn't there and shook my head in disbelief as I got up to go outside. As I'm standing outside with the animal control dude looking at the ground, we hear a pathetic moan from above us and look up and dickhead is slumped over a tree branch 10 feet up and looking worse for wear.

Animal control gets his pellet gun out and knocks dickhead out of the tree. Says he's gonna cut dickhead's head off and send it to KU med center for a rabies evaluation. I was told I would know within a week if I had to go in for the painful stomach shots. So a week later, I get the good news that no rabies but my fingernail also fell off. It grew back deformed and the doctors tried as they could to fix it, even removing it several other times over the years and treating it with medicines and creams to no avail. Finally about 5 years ago I noticed that it was starting to appear normal around the cuticle and it proceeded to grow out fine. No problems since.

So yeah, squirrels suck

So, went down and helped my mom with some things around the house and made her diner for mother's day, Sunday, and I got a whim to walk around the back yard along the creek/woods to wax nostalgic.

I hear a rustling in the overgrowth and I go to a portion of the yard that runs all the way up to a ledge carved by the creek when I see it:  A small furry mammal bounding through the brush.

I stood still and studied it, keenly.  My first thought was a raccoon, it was roughly the size of a mature raccoon, but it was probably a little too big and lacked any stripes or bushy tail.  It had more of a weasel shaped body, brown and black and long, though it was very thick around the middle.  Around 40lbs or so, it honestly looked just like a wolverine, though how one would find itself in south-central Kansas would be beyond me.

The creature moved in bounds, so it probably had pretty short legs, it would jump up and over the brush around it in a tiring fashion.  Far from graceful, it would jump about 30 yards at a time before stopping to turn around and glance back at me to see if I was still watching.  Eventually it found some trees and bushes to hide under; though I could still it looking at me (at this point about 80 yards away) it had a black face as well.

Not thinking it resembled any local fauna I was familiar with, I thought maybe it was a stray cat or dog but it was not very canine looking and would have to be a very large cat.  Plus it acted too wild to be a stray, I wouldn’t expect even a feral cat to flip out at seeing a person standing on the opposite bank of a creek 30 yards away.

I mentioned the animal to my mom, and she said it was a marmot.  An animal I’m familiar with, I’d only ever seen them in the mountains, and usually donning very light sandy blonde hair.

Anyone have any suggestions on this mystery animal?

Was mowing my lawn the other day and looked up to see a perfectly constructed bird's nest in my attic window.  There was a female robin in it. So, after I got done mowing I took mini nicname up to the attic to get a closer look from inside.  As we approached to window the robin flew off to a nearby tree limb and revealed four baby-blue robin eggs!  I'm not sure if mom robin was scared or just wanted to show off her eggs, but I'll settle on the latter.  It was a nice gesture and I would be kind of disappointed in her for bailing on her kids so quickly.  I mean, we were inside for goodness' sake, and we weren't being threatening at all. 

I headed up there yesterday to get something out of the attic and also to see what me friend the robin and her family were up to.  Long story short, there were only three eggs this time and one baby robin chick!  I'm excited to head up there tonight and see what is happening at the robin residence!

My dad has been photographing this family of foxes by his work.  There are two adults and 4 pups.  Anyway he heard that this conservation group was looking for a family to adopt this other orphaned baby fox so my dad called them and they brought the pup over and added it to the family.  I guess foxes will just take all comers or something.  Anyway he got some coll pictures of a fox with a fat grey squirrel.

I used to love when my parents would mow when I was little. I would always end up with at least one garter snake to play with. I was obsessed with snakes for most of my childhood. one bit me one time between my fingers and I freaked the eff out. my dad was laughing and I was all pissed like "WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING I JUST GOT BIT BY A SNAKE.". he was all "lol you probably just broke the poor thing's tooth."

For the second straight year, a robin has been incessantly flying into the windows that frame our front door every single day.  He will literally fly into, and attack, our entry way several hundred times per day.  It's like someone is softly knocking on our door all day long.

My wife bought these colored strips to try and distract him, but that didn't work.  We put up a fake owl, and he crapped on it.  We put up a bird feeder in the front yard to try and use other birds to scare him away, but he's still there.

Day after day, he just flies into my front door.  I have no idea what we did to make him mad, but it's his life's mission to attack that door.

IT DOESN'T HAVE A rough ridin' RATTLE!!  hard to tell from the pic but it was probably a bullsnake.  your mom did the mice and rat population a huge favor.  bullsnakes are slightly more dangerous than garter snakes...and earthworms...but only slightly.

1. A sticky board thing is a 5x7in piece of sticky board that traps bugs when they run across. Earlier in the thread I told a story of my mom catching and killing a small snake with one in my grandma's uninhabited house. sys hated hearing that.
2. We haven't killed the snake in the pics, i was kidding. But perhaps i'll take your advice and track him down with the mower.

You must have a huge porch Stevesie.  There is an owl that makes a nest above the big doors in one of my dad's machine sheds every year.  Sometimes you can see 2 fuzzy heads poking out of the nest.  If the mom owl is in the nest she will clap her beak loudly at you until you leave.  She looks like this --->  :comeatme:

So we have this game we play in the car called "HEY COW". The premise of the game is that when you are driving down the road and there is a cow on the side of the road you roll down your window and yell "HEY COW" at the cows and you get points or whatever for how many cows look at you.

Yesterday we were driving down the road like normal and there happened to be a cow right next to the road and my wife gets really excited, rolls down her window and yells "HEY COW" and then a man cow storms out of the bushes behind the first cow and immediately mounts and started farm humping. My wife screamed and I laughed hysterically, but we continued to drive safely.

I recommend you play this game as well.

So we have this game we play in the car called "HEY COW". The premise of the game is that when you are driving down the road and there is a cow on the side of the road you roll down your window and yell "HEY COW" at the cows and you get points or whatever for how many cows look at you.

Yesterday we were driving down the road like normal and there happened to be a cow right next to the road and my wife gets really excited, rolls down her window and yells "HEY COW" and then a man cow storms out of the bushes behind the first cow and immediately mounts and started farm humping. My wife screamed and I laughed hysterically, but we continued to drive safely.

I recommend you play this game as well.

I have played this game before and it is exactly like it sounds.

I also play this game except I call it "MOOOOOO!"
  I always scream "Moooooove over you're standing in my hay" Man they are so sick of hearing that one,stupid cows

I play this game with horses and honking at them.  I like it when they get startled and then look all bored like they didn't really get startled by it.

Thats a pretty dick move there jax.

Was driving to a wedding out in BFE last month and something had spooked some horses and caused them to run through a barb wire fence. Traffic was stopped and one horse was in the middle of the road soaked in blood with chunks ripped out of it.

Well, I've never been able to make a horse actually run.  Most of the time, they male genitals an ear.  Sometimes, I can get one to jerk his head up a little.  Then, he's like, "No way did a horn just scare me" to his bro horses.

When I was in 4th grade, I was at the neighbor's house, where they had a cat and a great dane.  As I was waiting for my friend to come out, the door opened and the cat rushed out, stood still for a microsecond, and took the fastest poop I've ever seen.  The cat took back off running as the great dane came running out the door after it.  The dog saw the poop, sniffed it, and wolfed it down in one swallow and then took off again after the cat.  That was the first time I realized why I don't want dogs to lick me.

One time I hit a cat. I wasn't 100% sure what I hit, so I turned around a few blocks later to double check. I saw a grey cat with a pink collar in the middle of the road right where I was sure I had hit something. I teared up a bit, thinking of a small girl finding the body and crying because of the trauma I had put her through.

But one time I hit a possum. I was a few seconds from hitting him when he paused in the middle of the road, looked up, and got hit by my Ford Explorer as soon as his head was perpendicular to the road. I laughed hysterically for about a mile. What contrasting experiences.

Amazing-ly sad animal story to follow:

We have two chipmunks that live in our backyard.  My kids named them Chip and Dale (they're not very creative kids).  Anyway I was out in the yard the other day and I see Chip sitting next to the shed looking at me, so I call the kids over and we are looking at him and talking about how adorable he is and stuff.  Just then a stray cat that always hangs around our house walks up with Dale in his mouth!  We are horrified obviously and I pick up Meow (cat's name) and pry Dale out of his jaws.  He is still alive so I hold Meow and set Dale on the ground to see if he will run away.  He tries but his back legs won't work.  So he is trying to pull himself away with his front legs.  Well I think he might just be in shock because I thought I read one time that it can cause temporary paralysis, so I pick him up and take him to the shed where he and Chip live and put him next to his nest which is this pile of leaves/sticks in the corner of the shed.  I close the door and go in for the night. The next day I go back to check on him and he is in the same spot, but dead.  I buried him next to the shed.  I was really mad at Meow and thought about shooting him with my BB gun to teach him a lesson but my wife reminded me about the circle of life and all that so I didn't.

somewhat similar story to 33's. my wife was bored six months ago (i think) so she bought a fish tank with some fish for my son and put it in his room. he was 5 at the time. anyway, a week later and there are seven or eight teeny, tiny, baby fish. apparently one of the fish was pregnant when she bought it. anyway, these baby fish were tiny. like super small. anyway, i'm downstairs and they all freak out when they see them and run down to get me. and my son is just so happy and so proud and it really is kind of cool. because, what the heck? we thought we just got a couple little fish but now there are going to be more and it will be kind of fun to watch them grow. so anyway, they brought me upstairs and most of the baby fish are hiding down at the bottom but one kind of swims up to where the mom is and we are all watching and it's super cute. then the mom sees it, stares at it for a bit, then eats it. i was like uh oh. son saw it, and freaked out. i felt bad.  :frown:

Opossums are sweet and gentile creatures, and you probably shouldn't be so flippant about murdering them with your Ford Explorer.  They're also the only marsupials in the USA.

I saw an armadillo on a country road in McPherson county on Friday night. That's probably the furthest north an armadillo has ever been.

they're in nebraska now, heading for south dakota.  they're a wonderful success story.

you're right, i had another browser window open and looked at the wrong picture.  sd's snake is a black mamba.  be careful when you shoot them, if you don't get them right in the anus, it'll bounce off and they can jump 6 feet straight up.

Your analogy sucks, let me fix it for you.

you know what we rescued the other day about a hundred yards from my house? a little turtle that was deathly injured and unable to move, looked like someone had run over it or something because its back legs were not working. you know what we did with him? brought him inside for the night and then gave up trying to save his life and then released him in the morning. benji- do you plan on letting that lil guy die at the hands of a stray cat/heat stroke on the pavement/neglect?

If the lil guy makes a complete comeback I plan on releasing him back to the wild...Kinda doubt that will happen though.

If he survives but does not recover full functionality in his legs I will probably make a big ass atrium thing for him in a 55 gallon fish tank and let him live out his life munching on strawberries and grapes.

you need to give it more than fruit and grass.  it needs protein and more calorie-dense foods.  if you don't want to buy anything especially for it, offer it breads, tortillas, etc.  dry dog food is great.  pretty much all rodents love peanut butter.

Alright so last night, at some point between 11:30 and 1:30, my dogs just started going OFF. Barking as loud as they could for about 10 minutes. Lady Asava and I were so tired we just got annoyed, and told them to keep quiet. Eventually they piped down. Fast forward to this morning, and we find this...

Only 1 thing you can do Asava, get your BIGGEST gun and wait for the bear to come back, maybe throw some dead fish or pig heads in the lawn to attract him.

When he comes back pop him a couple of times with your huge bear gun then skin him up and make a nice bear rug to throw in front of your fire place.

Definitely showing some improvement, I honestly thought he was dead one time on tuesday.

He has limited use of his back legs and kind of jumps/bursts about 6 inches then will drag himself with his front legs. He ran around a bit today in the garage when I was cleaning his cage.

Was swimming at Black Swan Lake this weekend and there's all these fish that congregate by the pool because kids feed them I guess.  Also there was a big snapping turtle.  :sdeek:  So I jumped in and grabbed him by the tail.  As I was hoisting him by the tail I could feel like vertebrae being popped.  I held him for a while and then my arm got tired so I let him go.

I'm going to be super pissed if he doesnt come out by the time I get home.

I was keeping him in a tubbermaid container in a spare bedroom, go to check on him over lunch and he isnt there! Move all the grass around and still no Emawnk...Check under bed and dresser...Nothing, then I see the tail and snap a pic....pull on tail but he wont fit through crevice of vent cover and wall....take off vent cover and go to grab him and BOOM, darts into vent.

The actual duct is about 6-12 inches below the vent/wall opening and I could hear him moving around in there

                                                   Floor -->  ---------------- ]
              Duct--->                     ______________________/


I Put a T-shirt down the vent for him to climb out on and really hope he does, last thing I need is Emawnk dying in my ductwork.

Emawnk made it out of the vent by the time I got home and was chilling in the room.

His legs are also doing MUCH better, took me and my brother about 5 minutes to corral(sp?) him and get him back to his makeshift home.

He still has a slight limp and couldnt really make it across the room but he is definitely doing better than a week ago.

So walked outside to get something out of my jeep around sundown and had this cat run up to me
(http://ubuntuone.com/6X2suY8tFM1KrdHZux6IqO)
Seemed friendly so i thought it was one of my neighbor's, just catting around for the night.  When i reached down to pet it, i noticed it lacked a tag, which isn't an immediate sign of a stray, but it also seemed to have a few fleas ( :sdeek: ) and was a little on the thin side... so i think it might be an abandoned pet guys, which is super  :bawl:

Anyways, set out a bowl of water and a can of refried beans i had no intention to eat (who brings, much less leaves, crap like that at someone's house?) and it ate a little bit.  After reading the chipmunk story i put some peanut butter on some bread and she seems to like that more.  I'm not letting this thing inside, as is, but if its still around tomorrow i might pick up a flea collar for it and consider keeping it around until i can find a home for her, other than that,anyone have any suggestions?

Hey, I have saved a couple of snakes that were in danger in my yard.  We were digging a flower bed, and he almost got slashed by our shovels.  So, I picked him up and carried him to the field.  Others have been spared from the lawn mower.

I have no beef with snakes.  They are great to have when you live next to a field.

Last spotting was under a couch but when I moved the couch I couldnt find him....Have set a trail of nuts/fruit leading back to his container and hope he returns soon.

Will be releasing him back in the wild tonight assuming I am able to capture him, will take plenty of pics.

My dog (lab/basset mix) got bitten by a snake twice last weekend. 

Dog's nose swelled up to like twice it's normal size.  Vet had me give her a bunch of Benadryl and a couple days later she is fine and out trying to catch the snake again!

Her cheeks and basically every part of her mouth and face was very swollen.  Was sad watching her, so not being in kill-snake mode right now is a pretty big step for me.

When I hunt MT I carry a vial of benedryl and syringes with me in case of snake bite. 

Casey I'm betting your dog was bit by a venomous snake.  Usually vets will prescribe an anti-biotic as well because snake mouths have a ton of bacteria allegedly.
Title: Re: amazing animal stories thread (post your own)
Post by: sys on July 23, 2013, 05:17:51 PM
snakes' mouths don't have a ton of bacteria (i mean they do, but no more than the tons of bacteria everything else has).  and in general bacteria that infect ectotherms aren't capable of surviving well in endotherms and vice versa.

dogs are quite a bit more resistant to pit viper venom than humans are.  in general a snakebite in north america is no big deal for a decent-sized dog.  and copperheads aren't very venomous, so a copperhead bite is even less of a big deal to a nice big fat lab/bassett.

Huh.  Had always been told that they arw around here.  Used to have a lot of what I assumed were that at the pond in my childhood property.  Were bunch of smallish blackish snakes that all lived on/near the pond dam and were somewhat active in the water.

For example: one day we went fishing elsewhere for the first half of the day.  We came home and tossed the minnow bucket in the pond to help keep the remainding minnows alive until the afternoon fishing sesh.  Went to get the out of the pond a few hours later.  Found the bucket to be much heavier than it should be and found a 3' snake fitting the above description in the bucket and a bunch of dead minnows and a bunch of missing minnows.  Didn't think black snakes rolled like that.

there aren't any water moccasins in kansas city.

Huh.  Had always been told that they are around here.


people say a lot of inaccurate things, especially about snakes.  the snakes at the pond were probably northern watersnakes.

Making a sammy on my lunch break and Emawnk comes darting around in the kitchen, no idea how he got out but he's currently loose somewhere in my house.

Last spotting was under a couch but when I moved the couch I couldnt find him....Have set a trail of nuts/fruit leading back to his container and hope he returns soon.

Will be releasing him back in the wild tonight assuming I am able to capture him, will take plenty of pics.

Conversation earlier between me an my brother who lives in the basement

Ben ji- FYI keep an eye out for EMAWnk upstairs, he escaped today and I have not found him yet.

Brother- He's in the vent again, just heard him rustling around

Ben ji- Which one

Brother- Dont know, it could of been one of the ones from the living room or the spare bedroom.

Ben ji- (sigh) alright (Tries to determine which of 3 vent shafts he could of entered but cant hear him moving) (sets up homemade ladder's in 3 different vents)

When I lived in Texas (I was 6), I came a crossed a dead lizard and snake that had ripped each other apart for a final showdown over territory. The neat thing, there was a bunch of baby snakes swarming around the scene. Must have been the mother. It was a cool thing to see for a 6 year old.  :love:

I was just laying in bed and I heard a noise which I thought was coming from the wall.  Sounded like something scurrying around in a vent or something at first.  So i got up and went into the hallway and listened.  Then I heard a noise that sounded like something running around on the roof.  I have cathedral ceilings which follow the roof line so no attic.  I went out the front door and as soon as I turned around I saw two raccoons staring at me from the roof.  I said "what are you guys doing up there?" and they ran to the other side of the roof where I couldn't see them.  I went back inside and they ran around for another 5 minutes or so and then I guess they got off because I haven't heard them for a while.  What are they doing up there?

Sure enough, i get home on my lunch break, start to make a sammy and whooosh, EMAWnk comes running into the kitchen.

Chased him around for about 10 minutes and finally captured him by throwing a towel over him. Took him out side and EMAWnk was set free.

FYI- ALL CATS ARE COLD BLOODED KILLING MACHINES!!!


Walking the dog today I saw noticed a cat about 20ft away, it was resting next to the curb under the shade of a tree looking cute as can be.

A bird quickly enters the scene and goes for a landing on the street without seeing the cat. As the bird is getting ready to land the cat leaps 2ft in the air, knocks the bird down with its paws then snaps it's neck all in about 1 second before casually walking off with the dead bird in its mouth.

you don't even have to train the falcon.  you just need to train the waitstaff to tie the food to a pigeon and the falcon's natural instincts will take over.

So, went down and helped my mom with some things around the house and made her diner for mother's day, Sunday, and I got a whim to walk around the back yard along the creek/woods to wax nostalgic.

I hear a rustling in the overgrowth and I go to a portion of the yard that runs all the way up to a ledge carved by the creek when I see it:  A small furry mammal bounding through the brush.

I stood still and studied it, keenly.  My first thought was a raccoon, it was roughly the size of a mature raccoon, but it was probably a little too big and lacked any stripes or bushy tail.  It had more of a weasel shaped body, brown and black and long, though it was very thick around the middle.  Around 40lbs or so, it honestly looked just like a wolverine, though how one would find itself in south-central Kansas would be beyond me.

The creature moved in bounds, so it probably had pretty short legs, it would jump up and over the brush around it in a tiring fashion.  Far from graceful, it would jump about 30 yards at a time before stopping to turn around and glance back at me to see if I was still watching.  Eventually it found some trees and bushes to hide under; though I could still it looking at me (at this point about 80 yards away) it had a black face as well.

Not thinking it resembled any local fauna I was familiar with, I thought maybe it was a stray cat or dog but it was not very canine looking and would have to be a very large cat.  Plus it acted too wild to be a stray, I wouldn’t expect even a feral cat to flip out at seeing a person standing on the opposite bank of a creek 30 yards away.

I mentioned the animal to my mom, and she said it was a marmot.  An animal I’m familiar with, I’d only ever seen them in the mountains, and usually donning very light sandy blonde hair.

Anyone have any suggestions on this mystery animal?

Mystery animal solved, its a GD louisiana swamp rat!  I since I saw it first last spring, i don't think it hitched a ride with any ULL fans, but apparently they have been known to travel up the Arkansas from Oklahoma...  should i call the city to trap it or just commando out and take it for a trophy?

This is Derby KS, Spring creek, about 2 miles up from where it drains into the Arkansas.

Alright so CFoD brought up Pandas in another thread but I think it goes here.  So a few weeks ago I saw something that said that all the Pandas in the world are owned by China.  Any Panda that is outside of China(Zoos, pets, circus, etc) is being loaned to that country for a set period of time by China.

Anyways I thought that was interesting, so I told ShellShock and another buddy who doesn't post here about it.  You would have thought that I threw a bible in a bonfire by their reaction to this news.  We had a long argument about it but never could change each others mind.  What do you guys think?  All Pandas owned by China or not and why?

it's not all that uncommon.  i believe australia also asserts ownership over some (maybe most, maybe all, dunno) native australian animals kept in zoos.  pretty much all of the native australian animals you see sold all over the place as pets are the descendants of illegally smuggled animals.  technically, they are illegal as well.

what if some native species escapes and naturally finds its way into the USA? I don't think china could say anything then. maybe those pandas should swim for it.

Pandas are on my list of animals that i don't think are worth "conserving"  Sure they are cute but they are terrible maladjusted to living in the world.  They only eat bamboo, a woody stalk lacking many nutrients, and i mean ONLY eat that... hand one a carrot and its like WTF?.  I think if they weren't cute and looked like children (large eyes, furry, ok maybe not children but cutesy) and the chinese haven't been whoring them out for centuries they would have died out a long time ago.

actually you're wrong for the wrong reasons.  pandas are worth conserving, but not for traditional reasons.  i have a vest made from panda pelts which i harvested off of pandas illegally in a chinese forest.  might be the warmest vest i own.  should grow panda farms similar to how we have pig farms in north carolina and outfit the world in warm panda vests.

Escaped Dog Runs Half-Marathon, Wins Medal, Gets Neutered

Boogie got off his leash Friday night, and the next day decided to join the Evansville half-marathon. He finished in 2:15—better than most of the entered runners—and promptly got sent to an animal shelter for his trouble.

The 8-year-old Chocolate Lab became a sensation during the race, running much of it alongside Kim Arney. But once he reached the finish line and no one claimed him, poor Boogie had to be shipped to Animal Control. Police appealed for his owner to come forward:

"Because he did not officially enter the race, we do not have his race times. However, we are confident he set a new course record for an unassisted dog,’ Evansville police said in a post immediately after the race.

"Anyone who might recognize this champion runner is asked to help him get back home."
Boogie's owner Jerry Butts came to claim him, and on Tuesday, Boogie was reunited with Arney and awarded a participant medal.

This was Boogie's fourth successful escape attempt, so to calm him down, Butts is going to have him neutered. "He’s going to lose part of his manhood here," Butts said. "That was part of the deal."

I heard EMAWnk in the vents last night and really hoped he came out today.

Sure enough, i get home on my lunch break, start to make a sammy and whooosh, EMAWnk comes running into the kitchen.

Chased him around for about 10 minutes and finally captured him by throwing a towel over him. Took him out side and EMAWnk was set free.

I've seen a couple of chipmunks in the past week while walking my dog.

Everytime I see them scampering I think it could be EMAWnk.  :D

Quote
When threatened or harmed, they will "play possum", mimicking the appearance and smell of a sick or dead animal. This physiological response is involuntary (like fainting), rather than a conscious act. In the case of baby opossums, however, the brain does not always react this way at the appropriate moment, and therefore they often fail to "play dead" when threatened. When an opossum is "playing possum", the animal's lips are drawn back, the teeth are bared, saliva foams around the mouth, the eyes close or half-close, and a foul-smelling fluid is secreted from the anal glands. The stiff, curled form can be prodded, turned over, and even carried away without reaction.  The animal will typically regain consciousness after a period of between 40 minutes and 4 hours, a process that begins with slight twitching of the ears.

Question for sys:  when I'm walking the Montana prairie and my eye catches the movement of a rattler raring up to strike and I instantaneously jump out of the way...is that instinct from some sort of genetic evolution that humans are or should be afraid of snakes?  I mean it seems silly that humans are generally afraid of snakes and spiders and such, even though most species are not dangerous to us.  Hell I've jumped at a mouse running across the floor.  Basically I'm a pussy right?

iirc, infant humans don't show instinctive fear of snakes, but infant apes and monkeys do.  but very young humans display an elevated sensitivity to snakes/snake shaped objects and often/usually develop a measurable fear fairly early in life.

so yeah, i'd say it's basically instinctive, although apparently not in exactly the same way as in some other primates.

Does it live in the kids play house? Oh man, this could be almost as good as benji's adventures of EMAWmunk, although I don't foresee the deer getting stuck in the vent :cheesy:

My GF  is a hayseed from western ks, her mom found a baby deer on the side of the road next to its mom who had been hit with a car.

They took the baby deer home and raised it like a pet for a while before letting it go. She said it would act just like a dog inside the house and after they released it the deer would come back to their front door every once in a while trying to be let inside. :)
