“...... in the Yard”


Description from Frida: Dear Linda I hope that the Skunks aint eating your Koi!
Lately I have been thinking much 'bout how we can learn to co-exist with the nature and the wild animals. In Sweden it is a huge debate about mainly the wolfs but also the bears, lynxs and the wolverine. Our new goverment desided to kill some wolfs, quite many, took a few days and the hunters had filled the quote... A week ago a little wolf pack of 5 individuals got killed by a train... Train andgovernment togheter=soon no wolfs... Now they let the hunters kill a quote of Lynxes... OK I also want to protect my domestic animals, there are methods...
Linda this is not 'against' you so don't be offended. Hugs

    I just woke up so I don’t know whats going on but I love the pick. Perfect statement to say skunks eat koi. That’s not a good thing either. I must read about this. Sorry to hear about train, hunters and government. Sometimes people who run government don’t see the big picture and rush into things or so it seems to us. They represent all the people but sometimes somebody has different opinions and all should be taken into consideration including people safety and critter safety too. Not good for a species to disappear.

    Godmorning Dear Faith! I know this is a sencitive subject, but I think it is important to think about. Often we are entering animals habitats and just…. Often a animal that can give us much trouble also (ofcourse we forget) often benifit us in a great way… Just that I am very interested how one/we can let live and live togheter…. :)

    Frida lovely pick! And I agree with all you’ve said. I feed everything and anything that comes into my yard, much to my husbands dismay!

    Thank you dear Beth!

    It’s not easy :) Certainly I don’t want our kittens eaten, now most of them are indoors, but…
    Remember at our place we lived bf there were fox puppies that where to tame, one had its paws indoors :) I trained them that humans are dangerous… Soo I hope they lived a long life! But I love to feed aswell, we have a couple of reindeers that has been comming over now when soo much snow, they find our open barn and there something to eat ;)

    What a great pick, Frida! Such an important message, too. This is a sad subject here in our country, too — don’t get me started or I could go on & on for days……

    Part of the problem, of course, is that we are taking over the areas where the animals have lived peacefully for many years. Then we complain because they still want to be there! Good grief….. 8O

    Frida, no offense taken again – I am the one who took a chipmunk to the vet because he had a bad eye – got em fixed up too! I have a pic of him somewhere – I am a big animal advocate. You should see me if I hit a chipmunk or bunny when driving. I pull over and cry for a while. Definitely no offense taken.

    I never did get caught up this day. Nor will I today. I have to tell you I had to Pee Pee for over an hour and could not drag myself away afraid I would miss something. OMG this website is such an addiction. I need mental help I think, oh well I probably needed it long before this site. LOL. Did the skunks eat some of your Koi Linda,mom? I saw the picture of the beautiful one you named your pick after wonderful. Frida this is still a lovely pick, I did comment on it before.

    Thank you Linda and I am glad that you rescue animals. I def belived you were such a person and I’am glad you are :D Love to see that pic! Hm hope that made sence ;)
    (Hate) when people do car- hit n run on living things, always check the animal is alive or not! When it is possible to pull the animal to the side of the road, please do! I stops and pulls others victims to the side of the way (esp with pets) with tears… Road kill makes me cry, yes I am hypersencitive when it comes to animals..

    Thank you dear Lynn and thanx again Faith!

    Such an emotional pick and topic. I adore animals and I feed them too. I have suffered the price and have had my share of skunked dogs, but “Natures Miracle” is the best stuff out there for a skunked pet. BAby skunks are soooo stinking cute though sorry for pun. I feed the lost/abandoned animals with an eyedropper and formula or food. I try to save them.

    Frida, here is Chipster (the name I gave him). He is NOT afraid of me at all, when I am outside sitting on deck, he comes right over.

    How cute looks like a wild striped hamster to me! Is this the little guy he got his eye fixed?

    Yes, ever since his ordeal, he comes right over to me – I can’t sit my snack on the end table, he thinks it’s his. He won’t hang around for anyone else though. If Bill comes out, he’ll come on the deck, just not as close.
