    It's a jungle out there!

    The skunk is either gone or entombed but we have squirrels and birds up the wazoo. Raccoons of course thrive and a few weeks ago we saw a possum walking along the fence. (Aside from COVID our last provincial government outlawed pesticides about a decade ago and as the change makes its way up the food chain we are seeing bees, butterflies and birds we have never had in our neighbourhood!)

    Was talking to a friend today in Waterloo ON - and they have 10 foxes in their backyard - Mom Dad and a litter of 8.

    My sister was running last week and saw a fox and last month her dog was attacked by a coyote.

    Was talking to another friend last Friday and they are getting reports of a cougar in their neighbourhood (no jokes! ) (Peterborough ON)

    I think animals are enjoying people being inside.

    Oh and my friend's neighbour saw daddy fox walking up the driveway with a chicken. Oops

    Talking with mom on Sunday, she said there were 8 deer walking down the street. She does not like in a rural area.

    Our back yard is butted up to an area of protected wetlands. Literally a jungle. Squirrels, 'possum, raccoons, snakes et al. Haven't had a `gator show up in the yard yet, but they live in a flood control canal a hundred yards away.

    Neighbors reported a bear in their yards one block from where I live. Pictures were supplied. Looks like a young male searching for his own territory. Got to be careful when I put up my bird feeder.
