The ones here where we live haven't got testy, because we don't have dogs. They seem to definitely have a problem with those. Javelina don't see well and so if you are quiet, they just keep on doing whatever it is. I still have a healthy respect for them, though! Was hiking behind our house and came upon a few one late afternoon...got such a fright, but then I slowly moved away...they never even knew.

This is a great catch, Ingrid.

I think I'd be too busy running the
other direction before thinking to
point the camera at it.

I hear they can get a little testy?

So,,this MUST be BULLWINKLE then..lol..since you don't have Moose down your way,this will have to do to accompany 'Rocky',,right?! How awesome to see such wildlife! I love to hike,but no place around here to do that really that's very interesting that is!

LOL, yes....a few years ago they found our place out here in the countryside...ate whole a huge prickly pear cactus plant that I had, also demolished several xeriscape plants plus tried to uproot the Mexican Bird of Paradise shrubs. Sometimes see them come out from the surrounding farmers' crops...

Never heard of one - had to look it up. Funny they are not around here, everything else that eats my garden is. (from wikipedia - they will also consume cultivated crops and ornamental plants, such as tulip bulbs)
