I saw this thing wandering around my backyard in the dark (turned on my motion sensor light) so I decided to share it...

It managed to squeeze through a gap in my fence about

I have those and we capture them and kill them. Im freakin scared of them. All they are, are huge rats and the ones next to house are mean. I hate them cause they keep me up walking around outside of my window.

I once saw a squirrel fall off the powerlines behind my backyard. It just kinda thudded on the ground and got up and kept running.

That, my friend is a huge cat... I would like to see the video. Sounds funny. Our neighbors dog trys to catch them but its way to stupid to do so. If you throw a ball at their fence the dog will run strait into it.

23 pounds? What do you feed that thing? My uncle has a 20-pound cat, but it's all fat. I think I have a picture somewhere.

Dude my street just got an all out aerial assault!!

there was a swarm of AT LEAST a thousand birds. It looked a scene straight out of that bird movie!!
they were those little peices of crap that chirp like mad. They're like mini crows. Every tree on the block was covered top to bottom!

You could actually hear the crap and acorns falling from the trees and pelting the ground! The neighbors were out staring at these things. ot was seriously insane.

I took out my burst disc gun and loaded like 100 or so airsofts and started blastin them! They are all gone now and my gun has earned a new reputation as an anti aircraft cannon.

I didn't kill any (I think) but I assure you these are a nuisance in my area.

LOL!! They were probably starlings.........Have em here too in WA state U.S. Damn I hate them. We have never had THAT many though. SHEESH. My dad shoots at them with my airgun, and well, they have stopped coming after like 2YEARS!!! THey would eat ALL of the bird food in like 5 minutes, it was SOOO annoying.

I have seen that many at once though, just not in a residential area.

About possums, one time my friend had one attack his old dog, (she's dead now, put down.) and jeez, it tore her up.

From then on, lol, my friend can shoot them on sight with his bow! :P

nice... opossums are nasty buggers. I don't see too many but they do come around every so often.

I also heard that skunks make great pets if you de-scent them. They're supposed to be real tame and trainable.
