Made a fool again.
White flag waved (with crossed fingers)…
Ready for next round.
Early Monday morning we discovered the wildlife had another crazy night of partying. Somehow, they are able to keep their rabblerousing down enough that we sleep through it; however it’s obvious we were the benefactors of the animal equivalent of toilet-papering a house. I have the “trashy” pictures to prove it:
As my older son and I scooped up garbage donning very fashionable surgical gloves, neighbors slowed to stare as they drove by. One man stopped and rolled down his window.
“Ah, the javelina got ‘ya?” he asked.
“This is what the javelina do,” he said with a nod.
“Well then, I guess our trash won’t go out until I hear the garbage truck.”
I should’ve known! I bet it was that javelina that gave me “the look” after her baby finally freed itself from our garden. I feared she wasn’t done with us and I was right.
Arizona Game and Fish has pretty much tied our hands, as it unlawful to injure, kill or trap them. I don’t really want to hurt them anyway, but they aren’t taking the hint that they aren’t welcome around here. Since I’m not likely to lure a pack of coyotes as pets to patrol our land, I’ll have to do more research on all the things javelina hate and start doing more of that!
Stay tuned for our next failure 🙂
(It’s hard to show confidence when our efforts thus far make Elmer Fudd look competent!)
