    I'm up in Lake Tahoe while my house is being remodelled. This morning, I was letting my dogs outside, and as soon as I opened the front door, I realized there was a GIANT BEAR rummaging through my garbage it removed from my supposedly "bear-proof" garbage container. It was about 15 feet away, and my two pacifist greyhounds didn't see it and wandered right out towards it. Once it realized there were people and dogs coming, the bear bolted away.

    I planned on going back to sleep after letting the dogs out, but my heart is racing! Whoa! That thing was HUGE!!!

    cool!
    here's my animal story: I was walking to the bus stop and I saw this dead snake on the ground. I bumped it w/ my foot and GASP! it WASN'T dead! but the poor thing had it's back portion squished and somehow was glued in to the road. I tried to free it but then I realized it would probably hurt it more and it would die anyway so I had to do what needed to be done and I stomped it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    hey... it was cold and dark and I didn't have much time (I leave at EXACTLY the right time to catch the bus :P) and besides, there aren't many rocks among the grass (here... at least not rocks big enough)

    it felt horrible too. ... but you have to do what you have to do.
    I also killed a skink once... it was hurt and I did squish it with a rock that time (b/c there was one right next to me)
    that also felt horrible.

    but what was funny was when I was little and I killed a regular old housefly that was 1.5 m away from me... with a rubberband!!!
    and I once threw a tiny pebble at a yellowjacket (I wasn't even trying) and I hit it the very first time right on the back [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] (no animals were hurt in the making of the last memory)
