Scare your friends when you have a party 😜

That is sadly true :pensive: I was born in the countryside and we had hens freely running in the yard and mom talked to them and feed them and then killed them in front of my eyes to boil them…and to me it was the most natural thing. We had rabbits too, and ate them as well… But that was something else, I do agree the current animal industry is such a shame!

Okay, a wildlife thread :nerd_face: Meet the most unpleasant animals to be found in Finlands vast forests. Wolverines

If I would encounter one of them, I would… Hmm … run… No… they are fast…play dead probably.

Nooo Nicole,
I see them regularly on television…just last week…and I think they are truly beautiful
They got the power and the looks :sunglasses: (yes, I hear the songs :see_no_evil:)

I remember holidays on the Isle of Elba, we were in a holiday resort at the end of the season and every night a hord of boars went through the whole resort and left a trail of distruction. Scary.

@SILVIA Wolves are perfectly fine… and the wolve’s own account of the story sounds intriguing. Wolverines though… That’s a different story.

Are you absolutely sure? See video above. Aaah… This song you mean? :thinking:

I am not going to so sink low enough to link the original here :laughing:

Did they catch the liondog btw? :lion:

Hi @Helen0609

220 police officers, helicopters, drones and a tank… hunting a wild boar in the end (at least, that’s the actual status), could be a template for a comedy film.
“Those Germans” aren’t bored at all, they are learning to play guitar (at least me). I’m chasing notes and chords :joy:.

The thing made it to the news here obviously as well…

I just could not believe how similar they look, its uncanny. Does this mean I actually saw a lion sprinting across a nearby field in Normandy, a few years ago and it wasn’t a Sanglier as I thought ? Its a funny old world.

I still get these mixed up, we have lots of hippos in France :thinking:

One summer my husband and I were out in the woods at a high vantage point with binoculars just to see what we could see and a large badger with assorted little badgers walked across the trail 100 feet or so in front of us. Not quite a wolverine, but they are mean if cornered.

No such here luckily, but I heard that badgers can be a bit nasty.

We usually only have the occasional “bear spotted downtown” warning here, something like once per summer or so - and then it’s in fact a bear and not a boar :bear:

Still, I’d rather encounter a bear in the woods (as long as the bear doesn’t have cubs) than a wolverine :slightly_smiling_face:

:thinking: What do you think, would Silvia have a holiday job as head of the German police? :rofl:

What surprises me the most is that they still say “maybe not” here and in the east because Stevie Wonder can still say when he zooms in that it’s not a lion and sees those piggies standing there :woozy_face:
