There is a temp course in richmond that holds a annual tournament and it's an old 100 acre estate with a petting zoo and bison and bears and other random stuff, kinda crazy. At another course one time my disc came to rest on a deer carcass.

Coyote on hole #5 at Plaman Park, Appleton Wis. last fall. Night fall; me and a buddy on the tee for #7. Couple holes behind us, guys drive off the tee. Coyote chases to one of their discs; and gives it the sniff test. My buddy is big on the hunting scene; part native american; so, he starts doing coyote calls. Coyote hangs around looking over at us for nearly 10 minutes. Other crew gets up to their disc and coyote disappears towards the creek. First time I had ever seen one; so we tell this crew that a coyote was looking at their disc. They were a beverage drinking crew and one of the dude's replies, "Oh yeah, you see them all the time!"

I've seen a flock of wild turkey both times I've been to Stafford Lake, in Novato, CA. Nowhere near as cool as seeing a mountain lion or a bobcat, or as scary as seeing a rattlesnake, but still, pretty cool.

Oh yeah, last time we played Alexander there was a severed bunny head near the green of 9. Wonder if a 'yote got it.

One time when we were walking the the tee of 1 you go by this tall grass to the left and this guy was walking his dog and it just started freaking out and pulled its leash out of the guys hand and goes darting into the grass.

All of a sudden a deer hops up and hauls ass out of the grass and goes bounding off down the walking path.

We all wondered what the hell the dog would've done if he'd caught it...probably would've walked away with hoof-face disease.

I see deer all the time, saw a coyote on the course once, seen thousands of birds at Parma (they go all kinds of quiet at once sometimes...then the japanese beetles come out to play....then it's The Birds) I've seen some stray cats before, they're cool.

I saw the fat squirrel again today...it might just be a pregnant squirrel...but for some reason I don't think so. This squirrel seems to domesticated...like it's not protecting it's young...it's just begging for food.

Also saw a few ADORABLE chipmunks today, and several really relaxed ducks.

Tortoise

At Richmond Hill http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=453 we have a resident tortoise. I've seen him/her cruising around on #6 & #13 fairways.
