The Wild Animal Hostelry has closed its door for the season. The crawl space egress was closed with a flat rock bolstered by 10 pds of concrete. Cottontails, cats, fox, racoons, and possums who have been spending part of their time in the space during this extreme winter season, milled around in seeming confusion before making tracks to alternates sites. With numerous outbuildings and barns scattered throughout the country there is no shortage of alternate sites for their evenings pleasures. The closed hostelry has made for uninterrrupted sleep to the in house inhabitants who had previously been awoken by the excitement of the canine house occupants when wild animals wandered beneath their feet. We wish all critters a warmer spring!
