Okay, I have been reading so many posts about people killing raccoons and other animals, because they are pests. So I want to know if anyone likes these animals. One of my favorite animals are foxes, I find them to be adorable and pretty. I don't mind raccoons, though I don't really see them. I love skunks, and squirrels. I think I'm the only one in my neighborhood that does lol. The way I see it is that they were all here first so I really don't mind them coming in my yard. Now what I don't like in my yard are other people's cats, little kids and dogs lol. I especially don't like cats that are bird killers,and just kill the bird to play with it. I would understand if the cat ate the bird but I hate when they just leave the poor thing there. I don't mind crows near my house. I think they are wonderful birds. I also don't mind hawks, however if I see one I make sure my chickens are locked up. the hawks usually get mobbed by all the little birds that make their residence near my house. I just love all animals and I just feel so sad when people resort to killing them jsut because they are pests. Well I just wanted to rant on about why I like these animals. I really only want positive replies. Nothing about how you hate these animals. I understand that for some of you they have killed your animals and that is why you hate them. Anyway just felt like typing this up.
