    No photos since I was driving with the family in mammoth. "Look kids, a bear!" Car in front of us drives into bear, bear rolls down the street like a bowling ball, gets up, shakes, cruises off apparently unhurt... that was a close one.
    Just ring the fucking bell, you pansy.

    Glad the bear lived.
    Another animal I've never seen in person before.

    Stumbled upon this one hiking to Red Pine Lake, just off the trail close to the steam near the bridge. No sign of mom but we made a hasty retreat and gave him /her a real wide berth. We were uncomfortably close, just had a cheap camera with virtually no telephoto lens.Click image for larger version.

    they recently relocated him though- he had lived here for a couple yrs but this fall started getting aggro with people's swingsets and hammocks

    Can't say as how I blame him - hammocks are death traps.

    Guess I won't be filling the bird feeder this morning. Silly buck, what a funny place to lay down.

    (glare on the left is because I took the pic through the window of the laundry room door and the sun is shining on the glass)

    Hiker interrupts bears having sex and suffers the consequences
    http://www.someecards.com/news/weird...-consequences/
    A 54-year-old hiker named Dan Richman was mauled by a bear in the Sierra Madre foothills of California on Monday and a state warden thinks it may be because he interrupted two bears getting it on, the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The deer aren't exactly wild here; I find them looking in our front windows a lot.

    OTOH, the ground squirrels are pretty industrious. Took them three days to dig those tunnels (12" diameter) and move those rocks

    Great stuff in this thread. By the way, what the fuck is a ground squirrel? Sounds like some other kind of rodent to fuck up my yard and torment my dog. Just in a different medium.

    Ground squirrel is a burrowing rodent that hangs out in forestland. The ones around here look like this


    Bodies maybe 4" long x 2" wide; prolly weigh 24oz. I've seen 3 sec hang times when they jump across the trail.

    Riding buddy had one try to run through his front wheel last season - didn't end well for squirrel, and this kind of jerky-like stuff hardened between some spokes - was a bitch to get cleaned out.

    Most dangerous animals around here are the deer mice that occasionally scurry around our living room--there've been a couple of bad hantavirus cases here.

    That's a chipmunk no?

    Didn't know they could move rocks.

    Their singing is abhorrent.

    A chipmunk can be usually be distinguished because it also has stripes on its face. That little guy looks like a ground squirrel to me.
