Although I don't consider living in Florence, OR. rural, (I have lived rural and remote) so a town of 8,000 residents and a million tourist doesn't seem out-in-the-country. However, the critters here think that they can just live where they want. On one side of my yard is an old building I call it the "barn" it is a creepy place for me. Lots of cob webs, and crawlers and things that make noise in the night. It is mostly a storage place. Well the other day Mike asked if I had moved this large piece of wood he had in front of a hole. I said no but look at the hole something has been digging there. Mike puts the wood back in place and builds the dirt up around it. This morning I open the curtains and notice that the piece of wood is GONE!!!! REAllYYYY??? I put on a coat, (it is cold and rainy today) and go check it out. OMG! the critter decided to either push or pull the piece of wood through the hole an under the barn. Now it is probably a raccoon but there are river rats, and Nutria, and muskrats in OR that are gimonsterous and mean as hell, and just IIIIKKKKEEEEYYYY... LOL I think I can handle a raccoon but the others? I just want it out.
Here is the "barn"
Here is the hole. No it is not slanting it is the way I was holding the camera
And here is the piece of wood that the critter got through the hole, over a piece of concrete and around some other pieces of wood. OMG!!!
I used the zoom feature and a flash for this shot. I am not getting close to that!!!!
Oh and if you don't know what a Nutria looks like well here it is
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
