    Do you remember the animated movie "Open Season?" Is that Elliott? If so, where is Boog?

    i guess making it "out safely" means in a body bag.

    I wonder if it started eating from the grocery store how big its horns would get.

    Actually, the deer suffered a broken leg and had to be euthanized. I wonder who fact checked this story?

    It was actually a rat in disguise.

    I saw deer a mile or so from downtown Durham at Northgate Park. I saw a dead fox in the same area. We also have the occasional bear come through.

    This is their world too.

    I have an Opossum that ventures into the kitchen who nibbles on my dog's food. No harm being done.

    You have a possum in your house and you say 'no harm being done'. You are incredibly naive to think that wild animals don't bring disease and illness. But whatever man keep feeding that nasty possum.
