    I have a raccoon who likes to make his home in my garage....last week I saw him and a cat, (who was patiently waiting his turn, I might add) trying to get at my garbage. Until I opened the door and scared them both off. They each ran in a different direction, lol.

    One night, I drove into my driveway and scared off a raccoon and a possum....they are UGLY!!!! Those big huge teeth!!! Yikes!

    When I was younger, we lived in Northern Ontario, and we used to go to the dump at night, to watch the bears forage through the gabage. They were cute, but we knew enough NOT to get out of the car, or roll down the windows.

    We've had bears and cougars very nearby.

    A bit more interesting than the fields of cows and sheep that we got back in the UK!

    Interesting wildlife.. hmm.. Does my mother in law count?


    Simon..Go to a Outdoor Sport shop..The kind that carrys rifles and fishing rods..Pick up a can of "Bear Spray Repellent"..About$50.00.....Read the instructions on the can and teach the entire family how to use it..Make sure everyone knows where it`s kept......Bears and big cats have a mind of their own..Especially the cats.....If they get in the yard and corner someone,the bear spray is going to come in handy......I have Bear spray on hand,up hear at the ranch..I never know what I will find on the ranch from day to day..........Clint Eastwood...OUTLAW
