We live in a Zoo

No wait this is a toy Bryson left here.
If a woodchuck chuck wood how much wood would a woodchuck chuck?

I saw one of these critters.
We moved here in late December 08 and our back yard is one step over a fence in to a hay field and woods. The front is new suburb that is filling up fast with new homes.
We love the back it is so like living in the country. This small town is growing so fast they are moving out the wild life.
So far we have had Coyote, snake, rabbits , lots of red and gray squirrels ,moles, birds I have never seen before and now this woodchuck. Just think what we have not seen.
The paper has a story about the Arkansas Game and Fish officers out looking for a large cat . They say spottings are not new and Cougars have been caught in the past.
If I see one of those I will faint

Watch out for those cougars! But its sad that all of that wildlife's habitat is being removed and developed.

Where did I hear that news story about cougars? stalking small children? Scary. Is a woodchuck a groundhog? Being in the country is a beautiful thing.

We don't have quite THAT much wildlife in our suburb, but we do enjoy every bird that comes our way!

My, my.... I am glad we don't have that much wild life around.... I hate crawly things but little bunnies that hop are alright.

Ha, you could count me in on running the other way !
We have all kinds of critters in the garden and woods, even the groundhog types, I think they're so cute :)

Thats interesting....why are they called Whistle Pigs? Must whistle. We have a big one that sits up on his haunches in the garden, bold as can be.
