I was jogging around the block tonight and saw what I thought was a large cat slinking into someone’s yard. Strange thing was that it was dragging its tail and didn’t seem concerned about me at all - I thought it might be hurt or sick. Passing by, I finally realized it was an adult beaver - must’ve been four feet nose to tail. Impressive creature. This tops the armadillo I saw last year under similar circumstances.
What’s the craziest wildlife anyone here’s unexpectedly encountered?
