Some friends of mine drove down there to watch them one day, and after 4 hours on the road, they missed it by 10 minutes and got there as everybody else was leaving.

Default Bats!

Ouch! Well. We are quickly approaching "bat season" so start making plans. Id recommend doin the ferry boat on Town Lake instead of just standing on the bridge. It gets super crowded. If yall make a day out of it and wanna do a ride along I'm sure we could hook that up. So so so much to do in Austin !

We keep talking about doing overnighters on my days off, and Austin is on the list of things to do, so maybe when it cools down a little.

I had the same thing happen, only instead of a hair weave it was some poor kid's backpack. stolen, then tossed in his yard when all the good stuff was removed, I assume. The old man called to say that an injured animal was curled up in his yard, and we had better "send a man" out to get it. so of course I went, and picked up the backpack, and took it across the street to the catholic school, which was closed, and wandered around the halls till I found a monk.

I also had a really long busy night once which ended with me needing overtime to rush down to the south part of our county to attend to a panicky r/p standing by with an injured "cat or skunk" curled up under a car. yeah. it was a garbage bag. she was pretty embarrased.

A few months ago someone came into our shelter to ask us to go pick up the "dead baboon wearing a diaper" that was lieing in the roada few blocks away. Two minutes later we had a dead groundhog in a trashbag. I'm still not sure where baboon came from, but the diaper thing is just as confusing.

LOL, at one of the local shelters a citizen brough in a skunk in a trap to the shelter front counter. The skunk sprayed inside the main office and made the shelter pretty much smell for a good week.

Great stories!!!

I know (about that fear) -- I have a theory that it is cultural with some countries having much more folklore around animals as associated with fearful situations or things, or just patterns of children being scared/intimidated with something to do with cats. It is a huge problem in my area. People will tell us that if cats get up on their garage roof, these people are afraid that the cats will leap on and attack them! (These are just domestic felines, not mountain lions!). It leads to the cats being villified and calls to eradicate them, rather than just ignore them and go on about your business.

I have a couple of people on my staff that are afraid of snakes, and one who is afraid of frogs. Pretty much the only job related thing that causes me concern any more is when Iím by myself with 2 or more aggressive dogs. However, that is hardly a phobia.
