Default Things That Turned Out to Be Other Things

And the personnel that inspired them To Be That First Thing:

-- Weeping RP barely able to tell me where the poor egret was hanging off the wire fence next to the freeway. (Plastic trash bag.)

-- Weeping RP barely able to tell me where the poor injured baby raccoon was in the road. (Stuffed toy bear. With purple ears.)

-- Dedicated ACO journeying way up rough country, over stream, through marsh, TOTALLY soaked, to injured deer. (Same dam' old log that's been there for ten years, per FTO.)



Neeeeexxxxtt?

Default Things That Turned Out to Be Other Things

Had one lady, mid thirties, call and call complaining about hundreds of dogs in her neighborhood. None of us could find them. After she called the police and City hall over and over about how stupid we were and even calle dthe local paper and news station, we went out. this time we went out with the news media, rep from the City Managers office and a police Captain. When no one could see or find any animals, the Captain contacted her. She then started pointing out hte US mailbox, a hydrant, some bushes, flowers etc.. as the dogs in the area and demanding to know why no one was chasing them. We left.

Be safe

I'm guilty of a wasn't what I though it was....

This was when I worked nights at the county jail, 12 hour shifts 7pm to 7 am.
So my co-worker and I go out on the 2nd floor balcony to have a smoke. It's probebly close to 3am and cold as (blank). Looking at the building across the street we both see this man huddled against the wall on the roof! This is on the third story of that building (and it's 15 stories all together). So we ponder and ponder if we are really seeing what we are seeing. And them we both see him move!
So we quickly put out our smokes and do in search of a jail deputy, preferable one who has a flashlight. At 3am deputies are scares. So we end up back at our duty station to report what we saw to our Sgt.
Well we end up with the two of us and 4 deputies and our Sgt on the jail balcony. We point out the guy and a strong flashlight beam shines over.......
Turns out the guy is one of the big elbow type pipes that had been wrapped in insulation and the wind was making it appear to move.
After enduring the laughter..and our Sgt telling us to quit smoking crack on the balcony, we sheepishly went back to work. Of course by the next shift the entire jail staff had heard about it (I'm sure there was some radio traffic about it) every time for about two weeks when we would go on our smoke break someone would have a comment.

Wednesday night I got dispatched out to a Boa Constrictor on the side of the road. All the time I was driving out to the snake's location I am thinking " How the hell am I going to capture and detain this snake". I get there and it's one of those cotton booms they use to absorb oil slicks on water.
