Free at last!!! I finally downloaded the pictures of the release. Sorry it took soooooo long, but it's been more than crazy around here.
The boys are out in the big world and loving it! It didn't take long for Cooper, Chester and Laurie's 2 boys to take advantage of it either. Bama and Boston, the ARL coon that overwintered after getting his foot stuck in the crook of a tree, were too skittish around me to come out while I was there. As you can see, the other 4 were having oh so much fun!! The pictures speak for themselves!
Chester, Cooper and my buddy,Mr. Attitude, have been hanging around since. They have been hanging out in the den box on top of the cage in the rainy weather, and in the surrounding trees on nice days.
On this night, they were hanging out with me and Hissy and his brood. Hissy didn't seem to be to worried about the boys, and the boys were more curious and playful than anything.
Chester really wanted to play with them! LOL He even ventured out into the water....to a point!
Hissy and the family.... as you can see they were not very concerned! Not a ruffled feather among them! They started with 4 babies and a couple nights ago they were down to 1! I'm guessing the huge snappers in the pond are taking its toll, probably the reason they are sticking close to the shore despite the threat of raccoons!
A lot more updates on the current crew of babies coming up....some good, some bad unfortunately. I'll work on getting that out over the weekend for you!
