Unusual Animal Sighting

83 posts in this topic

This is far from unusual these days, but have seen alot of coyotes in Harford County lately and more so in the APG area.

 

And they aren't cross bread or mixed with dogs either, pure yotes appearance wise.

I have killed three Eastern Diamondbacks in back of my house in the last ten years. They are protected but we have dogs and got a pass.

 

wow, how big were they? ......

 

my daughter is having fits with southern pacific rattlers and her dogs in the Lake Tahoe area :eek:........

 

she has also had a cougar on her property and a bear tear up her chicken coop ......

All were about five feet. A few blocks away they cleared a vacant lot to build a Walgreens. I guess when they do a burn the snake hunters came in and they found eight on the lot including a pregnant female.

 

There are a ton of citrus rats that hang out in citrus trees and palm trees and it keeps them and a lot of blacksnakes around.

It was interesting in that all three were under the same palmetto bush and really hard to see even though their colors are striking when out in the open. The yard guy called my attention to it as it rattled at him.

 

The dogs spotted the other two but the dogs seemed to know to keep their distance and bark.

 

Sounds like your daughter knows her wldlife. Coral snakes more common further south.

I have seen a Bobcat near my house in jarrettsville at 3 in the morning. Foxes are common sight. I have seen a coyote once in harford country. And wild turkeys near my house and I used to see an albino deer daily.
