2 wild boars and a deer while I was in Guam. In the funniest way too........Sometimes the animals would sneak under the fence and onto the airfield, well we can't loose a billion dollar aircraft over a wild animal, so sometimes we got called to &quot;run them off&quot; through a gate we'd open up. SO three or four of us would jump in our 1 ton turbo diesels (vroom vroom!) and round em up (I guess thats what you call it???? I'm from CT!!) Those three ran to fast, the deer dead into a tree, 1 pig sliiped and wooops....goodyear got em! and 1 big, died of heat exhaustion. <p>So don't feel bad about the frog!<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://communities.msn.com/guidosequipmentpics/&quot;&gt;&quot;Guido&quot;&lt;/a&gt;<br>David M.

While I was mowing, a squirl came running around a corner and tried to run under the deck by the discharge chute. It came back out decapitated. Oppppps

Rabbit nests, small reptiles, baby birds, box turtles, mice, moles. These are things that I know I've hit. I sure theres a lot of other things I don't know about.

I swear to goodness I've missed about 2 rabbits a week most all summer long; the dumb things wait until you're 1 ft. away before they take off & scare the #$&! out of you! I always try to miss bunnies; I've also let about 3 moles live longer too in the past 2 wks. Snakes I will chase after tho <p>----------<br>Smitty ô¿ô<br>

I've run over more snakes than I can count. Barely missed a baby rabbit the other day, dang thing ran right across in front of my chopper. Haven't gotten any birds yet but at least one turtle, and a few field mice. Had to stop once and let a skunk cross a yard one evening. <p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/dtlc/&quot;&gt;Rich@Davis Total Lawn Care&lt;/a&gt;<br>
