I love my town.

.

As we’ve previously established, my small rural Maine town has a sense of humor. This was on full display today when I saw an offer of services on the town’s Facebook page.

While I would have appreciated a good Mother in Law trap back in the day, the picture in this post will probably give me nightmares of the inevitable beaver uprising for weeks to come.

While we had an extremely mild winter with very little snow this year, we did have rain. And ice. And more rain. Which lead to rapid melting, soft earth, mud and occasional washouts. Imagine driving over this section of road?

Yikes.

Sadly, this is the only bunny I’ve ever seen in our town.

  1. Ya know, beavers are ecosystem engineers, if those beaver traps weren’t installed 😉 their dam building might have prevented the issues with the road…As for wabbits, we have a problem with them in Australia – not enough predators for the rate they breed. So the knobs kept introducing foreign ‘bodies’ (of which the rabbit itself was one). They still don’t seem to have learned about the erroneousness of this today. Here’s some background on that for anyone interested https://csiropedia.csiro.au/myxomatosis-to-control-rabbits/

  2. You have beavers, but not bunnies? How sad.
    That road washout looks precarious! I had a dream the other night that we had LARGE sinkholes on our property; scares the bejesus out of me.

    1. “Less than 300 rabbits are believed to be in Maine, most in the south. Threats include the loss of young forest and thickets due to the loss of agricultural land, pets such as cats, and invasive vegetation not suitable for the cottontail. Now a state endangered species, Maine has discontinued hunting since 2004.” 😰
      As for sinkholes, you couldn’t pay me to live in Florida. Remember the man who was swallowed by one? Yikes!
