A close call!

This huge dead tree finally fell near down near the release pen, and it was a VERY close call! It skimmed down the side of the cage, ripping the tarp but luckily no damage to the cage. Good thing too....the gang was in there at the time! You can imagine my surprise when I came home to find that!!!

Had to wait until today to clear it. Dad was going to come Tuesday, but I didn't want to give the kids a heart attack with the chainsaw running right next to them! So today it was and now we have some big log pieces to use for raccoon amusement/human resting seats in the pens.

Mom even ventured into "the wild" looking for us and checking out our little project for the day. Had to talk her in by cell phone since she's never been past the backyard and had no idea where the path through the woods to the pen was.

While we were working we saw a sight you don't usually see around here! A blimp out for a spin flew over the area.

Went over to Mary's to take care of the gang and everyone is doing great and making a HUGE mess! They seem to like pooping in all the high places....on the shelves and boards up in the 10ft. section of course. That was a lot of fun to clean!!
A word to the wise, don't stand below a bunch of coonies that like to poop and pee in high WILL get hit! It wasn't pretty when I left covered in it!!
