Something odd was going on in the animal kingdom the first week of February.
We are used to this kind of report.
This is Wisconsin. We have cows. One occasionally gets out and stupidly stands in the road.
Someone has to tell them to move along or they will hang around all day enjoying the scenery.
This kind of call to the authorities is a little less common, but again, this is Wisconsin,
we have raccoons, and they sometimes wander where they are not welcome,
but we have to wonder...if there is a raccoon in a nursing home is the descriptor "stray" really necessary?
A stray dog in your yard, yes. It is not your dog. It is has strayed from its own yard.
But unless the nursing home has a pet raccoon and then discovers another raccoon has entered the building pretty much any raccoon on the premises is stray and does not need to be identified as such.
Here's a head-scratcher.
So many questions occur that we don't even know which one to pose first,
but we are dying to know how it all turned out.
And of course we are hoping upon hope that the animal three-feet long turned out to be a mongoose.
Rest of the story anyone?
