Lions and Tigers and...

Yesterday I found this alien substance in my driveway. Well I knew what it was but...who left it there was the big question!! The first thing that popped in my head was "BEAR"!The second thing that pooped...oh I mean popped in my head was "Daniel from 'Nature at Close Range' will know!" So I sent him a note and he said "send pictures" and before long we discovered it was delivered via raccoon.
WHEW! Thanks Daniel and friends!
I went back to mowing the lawn without fear of being eaten by a bear.
Darn raccoon!!!

WOW! I didn't know raccoon poop was so BIG! Glad it wasn't a bear.

Mary said...

I see a fair bit of that...usually deposited in my open bird feeders on the deck...yuck.

Amazingly, amusingly familiar! Do not look any different there in your country neck of the woods than here in our neck of the woods.

Eve thank you for your wise words on Country Cat. You gave me a light bulb moment about the joy. It helped more than you know and thank you for the people I have met because you were kind enough to share them!

Very organic Evie, or is it just a load of ...... {:)
Whatever I am glad the bear isn't going to get you.

We do have raccoons here, but I had never seen their poop. So now I know. :-) We also have the occasional black bear passing through, but I have never seen one. My next door neighbor seems to think her yard has been recently visited by a bear. Which means it was probably in my yard also.

Looks like a healthy one, too. ;o)

OMG - I couldn't believe there was a picture of POOP on my blog sidebar this morning in my list of "blogs I like to read"!!! LOL

Blech. Don't think I've ever looked at raccoon poop so closely. :-)

Really glad it wasn't bear scat, Eve!

If you go down to the woods today....(-: glad it wasn't a teddybears picnic along your drive Evie. Great typo by the way! (-:

Funny post, I think you should post some of your NY photos. They would be great to see a different side of your photography. Your nature shots are wonderful

Leedra said...

Will be watching for the raccoon photos.

Shellmo said...

Just how big is this racoon???? LOL!!! Run Eve, run!!!

Steve B said...

Oh, yeah, a bear pooh would be a big as your foot!

So I'm sitting here eating a bowl of cereal when I click on Google Reader and up pops your lovely poop picture. LOL!

Glad it's just a raccoon and NOT a bear. They usually do it in the woods anyway ; )

That last comment, left by Sharon, is pretty funny about bears usually doing it in the woods! Why didn't I think of that- that would have solved the "Case of the Mysterious Scat" :)

Eve said...

Thanks for all you funny comments on this post! I thought you'd all get a kick out of it!

Makes a fine tea I've heard. You try it out and tell me what you think...

Bird Girl said...

That must've been some big raccoon, Eve! I certainly would have thought BEAR! Daniel sure comes in handy ;-)

Eve said...

Ha Ha Warren...Ok I'll bottle it up and send it to you...
Danni warned me about you!!
