I have a herd of White Tail Deer that live in my yard. They sleep in the grass of my backyard and eat the blackberries in my front yard. They will also enjoy anything I try to plant. We get along fine. Pictured here with my dog, Boomer, is Bucky a three year old buck that has been in my yard since stumbling out as a fawn. The deer tease Boomer, who goes out on a rope. The deer go just close enough so they know Boomer will not be able to reach them.
We have all sorts of wild life in our yard turtles, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, wild turkeys and all sorts of birds. We call it our game farm.
Today "game farm" took on a whole new meaning.
This Black bear was in my neighbors yard...eating the garbage.
This guy was pretty comfortable with us going out to take pictures.
Giving up my garden is one thing but this is a whole different thing...Yipes. Now we need a "Please don't Feed the Bear" sign.
In an earlier blog a talked about the deer and about having no curb appeal because the deer ate it. Does anyone have advise on Bear Repellent??????
