    FFS, the thread is titled "wild neighbors".

    Cool pics, Chip. Our white tail will be starting growing their racks soon. We have 5 (2 doe, 3 fawns and one buck) that are regulars to the back yard. Coming in or out of the screen door to the porch rarely gets an ear twitch from them now.

    It's amazing how much panic one honest man can spread among a multitude of hypocrites.

    Even here, the suburbs just 30 miles north of Boston, we have a lot of deer families strolling on our property. Encroachment.....

    They are encroaching your "property?"

    Or is your suburban property encroaching on their habitat?

    Our and the nearby towns have encroached on their habitat.

    Hey folks… where I live there’s heaps of kangaroos. They hang out pretty close to city and suburbs. They are so common that I haven’t got any pics cos they are so taken for granted that if you want to see them, you usually only have to go a short distance from wherever you are to a place where they come out to feed….. often like parks and cleared areas.
    Unfortunately they also get hit on roads quite a lot , and it’s not uncommon at all to see them dead on the road side.

    Never actually seen one.

    When we anchored in Mansion House Bay, Kawau Island, NZ, there were wallabies cropping grass near the former governor-general's house.





    It's quite a swim to the mainland and they haven't escaped and become a pest, like the possums.
