Our little Blackie is quite the KING of the house. As much as he is told to get off the bed, couch,pillows and so on, well, as you can see, he rules
BUT,if our little BLACKIE isn’t careful he is the perfect size for a nice little dinner for the Lost Coyote!! I would love to insert a photo of the roaming Coyote in our neighbor BUT are you crazy? I am not taking a picture of a hungry Coyote!!! Hell, any roaming,free, COYOTE!!!
See we live close to the Mountains and Red Rocks! Which is awesome UNTIL the hungry animal comes looking OUR WAY for FOOD.
If you enlarge you can see the mountains in the background!
Such gorgeous views while walking my Blackie!!
But, you forget that WE have built our homes VERY close to their habitat and so these lovely wild creatures venture down into OUR lovely,peaceful (ok sometimes peaceful) neighborhoods! Typically, they only venture down when they get lost or desperate for food!!
Now, desperate for food is a BAD THING!!!
Worse, some people get excited by SIGHTING these awesome creatures and want to SNAP a photo!!!
NO! DON’T. The Animals are wild. You are not professionals. All kinds of things can and do go wrong.
Here is the deal. Turn and get away from a wild animal. You don’t want them to see you! Most are scared of us too. BUT, The animals are WILD and HUNGRY. You don’t want to take a chance on their reaction.
I am glad my husband is here and he had the fun Coyote encounter. And, let us just say his heart was pumping but my husband turned and got away from the Hungry Coyote. I have only come across a Bobcat, those things are larger than you think? They are thick Buggers!! Oh, and The Javelina Pig. Those things are ugly and smelly,yuck! And I can’t forget the snake that came to visit in the back yard.
I guess I felt I could safely get a photo but I have a confession, as soon as I snapped it, I ran in the house and stayed there for the rest of the afternoon and kept peeking out the window. Oh, and it took me a long time to sit comfortably in the back yard. I would read a few lines and search for a snake.
So, there you go. I live near mountains and Red Rocks but expect nature to stay away from my little human neighborhood!
Where do you live? Are you afraid of the things that walk on four legs and/or slither? Or, do you deal with it?
