Animals In The City
Fresno could use some of this sun
You might think I’d start off by talking about the silly amount of rain we have had the past month. Well, I guess I technically am right now. Dammit, I didn’t mean to do that.
No, but really, it has become boring. I have grown tired of looking at the radar on my weather apps.
I have become accustomed to it raining and I don’t like that about myself.
More sun is needed. This is great for the snowpack and all the things. But I am over it.
You Seattle people are stronger than I.
Moving on. I missed the past couple of windows to send out a Fresno!Fresno! The Holidays and work can suck all the creative time out of me. You were busy too, I imagine.
But I am here now and want to tell you about a couple of raccoons that came to see me:
Plump and adorable. I guess my front door was interesting to them. My garbage bins were unfazed by this encounter.
In case you were wondering where the hell this is and if maybe YOU could have these two stroll across your place, I live in the Fig Garden area (whatever the hell that is) of Fresno. Near Bullard High and stuff.
Been here for 10 years. In Fresno (on and off) most of my life. That is my first raccoon encounter.
I have seen foxes in the neighborhood on several occasions and in Old Fig. Had an owl hanging around last week for a couple nights (has happened many times over the years). Of course, hawks, geese and turkey vultures too.
Oh, btw, remember that time Kiel found a badger in his Tower District yard and couldn’t find someone to come take it?
Yeah, that was cool.
Oh, and there was that time a dude near Fruit & Herndon found a deer or buck just hanging out in his garage. Remember? That was the story I heard anyway.
Welp. Keep an eye out. Let me know if you see any weird animal activity too.
Thanks a lot for reading and subscribing. I am super frustrated that I haven’t put up a new post on The Fresnan this year yet - just wanted you to know that for some reason.
Again, I appreciate you being here. Stay safe out there, fellow Fresno enthusiast.
