I've read several great stories on this board. I thought I'd share one of mine. It's sort of a predator story. A couple weekends ago I heard some rustling in my garage so I thought awesome. Fnially, I caught the little SOB thats been eating my bushes in the front of the house. I smiled with an evil grin because I trapped him in my garage. So I grab my shotgun thinking Id just scare it out into my yard and just blast the furry varmint. So I yell into the house to tell everyone I caught the guilty party. Meanwhile, my wife (5 mos pregnant) and kids are all, I want to see the cute bunny. So I proceeded to move some junk (which everyone accumulates in their garage when you have kids) and I noticed a little furry rabbit all curled up under my workbench. I say, Oh! Its just a baby bunny! My wife gets all worried that Im going to blast it so she says, Let me pick him up and let him go outside!. I go back into the house to put away my shotgun because it wouldnt be good to blast a baby bunny in front of the kids. (Contrary to what my wife says I do have some emotions/feelings!) As Im going into the house I tell my wife, Dont pick it up without having my leather work gloves on! She responds, Its just a baby bunny! As I return to the garage my wife is saying, I dont think this is a bunny!. I yell, Put it down its a muskrat! It might bite you!. Most human beings when hearing that would just drop it. No, my wife with no fear (or brains) takes it out into the yard and places it gently on the ground. After she let it go I proceeded to lecture her about doing stupid things. Telling her that getting bitten by that would have stung like the dickens not to mention the rabies shots and what it would do to our unborn daughter. Anyway, we laughed the rest of the night about her pet Muskrat. Will muskrats go after my chickies? ps. My chickies are now 5 weeks old and growing like weeds.
