BEARS? OH NO!
Last night my dogs were barking like crazy. My motion light came on and I let the dogs out. Then Frankie and Slim really went crazy barking and growling. Opening the door a crack I could see two huge forms outside the door and two small forms. Bears have been spotted in our area and I thought sure there were two bears with cubs resting on my lawn. Fearing for my dogs I got my gun and my flashlight and stepped out to face four PIGS! A sow, a boar and two young piggies had claimed my territory. The sow turned toward me and headed my direction making a horrible noise. 14 year old Slim stood her ground and got between me and the sow. 3 year old Frankie ran in the house and got behind me (great watchdog!). I managed to coax my guardian Slim back inside the house and called the neighbors to come get their hogs. It was after midnight before the animals were herded back to their home.
