    Don't know where she came from or what she was doing, but this young cow swam ashore between our boat and our neighbor's dock:

    The deck on our house is to the right. You can see the roof of our chicken coop on the left:

    I confess that my first thought was of a winter's supply of delicious, free-range, organic meat and moccasins for the entire family...

    What a lucky sighting! It's cold here this morning in NJ and I when I was reading your post I was thinking how chilly the water she was in must be!
    Glad you resisted the urge to convert her to dinner and shoes [​IMG]

    Send her over to Vermont please, I haven't had a moose sighting in a while and I'm suffering from withdrawal!

    Wow! You are lucky. The only time I ever saw a moose was a baby one when I was out on a lake fishing.

    I'm absolutely in love with them. I wish I lived in an area where they were native and abundant, but DH refuses to move to Canada at all. [​IMG]

    The strangest animal I have seen in our backyard was a 4 ft tall racoon with murder in his eyes.

    The most wildlife I see is squirrels in garbage cans.
