lefthanded guitar BS: Critters claiming Suburbia (24) RE: BS: Critters claiming Suburbia 05 Jul 11

I'll take deer over rats any day of the week. Cringe. I've seen rats bigger than a house cat munching away on the sidewalks of NY especially after construction. They're disgusting and nothing seems to scare them.

I'm surprised you can't spook those deer away, b/c whenever I've seen deer (even the relatively tame ones in Sunken Forest, part of Fire Island National Seashore) they take off like a bolt if you so much as tap your foot.

Perhaps if you played a loud shot of music at them- like Katy Perry or Eminem or even Barry Manilow for gosh sake; it may scare them away: it sure would scare ME off your property anyways ;)

btw in the suburbs of NYC I've seen raccoons (I often have to stop my car and serve as crossing guard for a mom ringtail and babes on a deserted night road), possom, woodchucks, even a fox. As we take away more of their environment, they leak into 'our' neighborhood.' Even a coyote in Manhattan.
These 'invasive animals ' remind us that we need to preserve and extend natural habitiats.
