    Shit, I was petting and hand feeding the cute SOB early last night.

    I think we may have seen it on Manthorne Rd. a couple of months back. He/she was waddling around our neighbor's yard in broad daylight without a care in the world. We called Animal Control and they showed up pretty quickly but s/he had already moved on to bigger and better things.

    Too bad he's dead

    It would have been a hoot if someone set him loose in Roche Bros.
