  • More on Animals at my site

    I have spoken about this before, but my site is 144 acres of patrol, and mostly
    thick woods. Peacefull, but at a cost. Deers, snakes, foxes, coyotes, fishercats, and yesterday either a woodchuck or a badger walking past my path. And this during a snow storm.


    Didn't mother nature tell these pets that they need to hibernate during winter?
    I would have told whomever wizzed by me he needs to go to sleep, but he
    didn't seem like talking.

    We have geese, skunks, racoons, deer, foxes, coyotees and black bears. The only one I watch out for is the black bear.

        Haven't you seen "when animals attack"? Better watch the deer. Oh, and the skunks. jeez, give them a wide berth.

          Most of the sites I worked with had feral cat problems by idiots feeding them so the cats could bonk on a full stomach to make more pests. Pest controllers set traps but they just scattered waiting for the same idiot to come back and feed them again on her shifts but roamed in the bush between other sites where they were in packs of 50+. After clearing the rubbish from the old factory and the overgrown bush, most of them disappeared when fences were mended losing the easy access through holes.

          Rats ....... well nothing like New York but always good when a partner would bring his BB rifle and we would take turns spotting the dumpster. Another site hygeine problem by not locking down the food dumpsters overnight.

          Feral dogs were another issue at a remote site. These dogs had been house pets and just bred into a pack of runts and inbreeders who would attack anything for food. We were issued firearms and a loaded .22 rifle you carried at the ready when checking perimeter gates and fences. We did see them but they usually scattered with flashing lights and a few horn blasts.

          But the worst offenders are Kangaroos (yummy too). They can be 300lbs or more (males) and will hop across a highway thumping into your car at 40 mph or more. I have seen the windscreen and panel damage hitting cars causing drivers to lose control. At night you just need to be extra careful as roadkill is a usual site in the morning or scenes of accidents but this only happens in bush or some country areas where the roos still roam freely.

            One of my sites, a nice nothing happens just watch the two gates you can see from one spot site, I thought about bringing my dog but decided against it. Good thing because another officer brought hers and it had a little run in with the skunks on site.

              We have bats at our mall. I have caught quite a few inside and let them go outside with the exception of 1. That one was stomped by a housekeeper after I told him in English to take care of it. Unfortunately, he is hispanic and speaks no English.

                The housekeeper probably could speak English, but was smart enough to say
                he cannot speak the language so he didn't have to deal with bats.

                Almost four years ago we caught a stray cat at our site. Same cat has been part of our home since that time.

                How in the name of heck do you catch bat??

                  Yep there everywhere

                  Hello

                  The one site I work (Senior Community) of about 110 achers with a Nursing Home on site. The nurses would put food and water out for stray cats. After a while they called security about a sick shunk outside the door. After several nights I finaly caught sight of the shunk. Thin, missing patches of hair and only having 3 legs. It was in sad shape. Than the worst happened, they called tro say the shunk was trapped in a bag on the loading docks. There in a bag of dispossable diapers was the shunk. Looking worse than ever he seemed on his last leg. The loading docks would be in use in about an hour so something had to be done. No animal response agencies back than. Got a six foot pole and was able to lift the bag and carry it accross the road to the maintance parking lot. We were located in the country and I had a whole private hillside behind me, so I finished him with one human shot. The 38 spl FBI load was a little over kill but it was all I had. Since that time I try to keep a 22lr close by for these chores. I try to post more when I have a bit more free time.

                  Thanks

                    Put a box over it, slide something underneath it to trap it and take it outside in the bushes.


                    A couple of months ago, while filling in on night shift, I was making my final rounds and noticed one inside the mall clinging on Saks Fifth Ave's storefront really high. I waited for another, taller officer to clock in before we took care of it. He took a long pole (probably 10-15 foot long) and threw it. The bat got knocked off the wall and landed on the floor. I grabbed a collapsable wet floor sign to grab it. It let out this ear piercing noise. I put the bat in the bushes outside.

                      Wildlife on site

                      Currently, I see a ton of coyotes. Last night I worked there were at leat 15 of them running together. There is another one who is quite friendly and will come up and eat take my scraps from me after chow. Previously, I have enocuntered skunks, rabbits, coons, badger, feral dogs, a few deer and alot of snakes, not to mention every flying, buzzing, biting, stinging little b*stard you can think of. Gotta love working on new construction areas.

                          At one point I was working a power plant that was essentially built in the middle of the woods. I hated chasing the coyotes out of the parking lots; especially the three (3) legged one, he was mean.

                            Weebl, like many web artists, would prefer that people stop linking Ebaumsworld when linking to their work. Ebaumsworld takes people's flash animation, puts it on their site with a bunch of ads, and doesn't bother to credit it. Even worse, they then brand the artist's work with their own ebaumsworld logo.

                            This entertaining flash video will explain why you should use places like Albino Black Sheep...
