Interesting encounter, Randall. Thanks for your story.

It could have been he'd been hand reared and released. I remember reading about a koala begging an Australian couple biking through, when there had been heat and wildfires, asking for water. I thought it might have been hand reared and saw people as helpers.

While playing golf the other day, a fox came trotting right up to me and plopped down beside my ball. He had no fear. Being mangy looking, I suspect he was rabid, so I backed away. And away he trotted. A rare close encounter.

Happy trip to Peru Randy. Is Machu Picchu on the itenerary?

One of my brothers went on a 2 year mission in Peru, trying to convert them to Mormonism.  He wrote letters to a gal he met there and a few years later, he brought her to the US and they got married.

Maybe I'll see  one when I'm in Peru next week!

That is a neat experience.

Comment by Randall Smith on August 19, 2018 at 6:54am

While out jogging yesterday, two fawns watched, pranced, paused, and followed me a bit. They didn't know what to think--possibly never seeing a human being before! Their mother hid the the corn keeping an eye on all of us. What a neat experience.
