Family of Deer

My friend captured these lovely deer with his iPhone as he was driving by. Photos taken in Marshfield, Wi. Living in a rural area it’s nice to see the wildlife …something I never saw when I lived in a huge city! I personally have seen deer, wild turkey, bald eagle, badger and have heard black bear. We also have at times had reports of bobcat or lynx in the area. For me, a wildlife lover, it’s an extra bonus of living here 🙂

So pretty! One of the perks of rural living is coming upon scenes like these 🙂 Love those white tails!

Looks like something got everyone’s attention here!

The Sheep Farm

These photos say, ‘England’ to me. The gorgeous countryside and the sheep are so beautiful and relaxing to look at. Our thanks to our friend, Angie in Devon England for taking these for us! These were taken near Teignmouth at a farm.

Rrrribit!

I love reptiles and amphibians in addition to animals so when my friend sent me these photos he took with his iPhone, I was a happy girl! His visitors were at his house in north central Wisconsin.

My friend’s visitor a little closer up. I absolutely love his coloring and the texture of his skin

All I could think of when I saw this was the line from the old Three Dog Night song. ‘Joy To The World’…..Jeremiah was a bullfrog! Not sure that’s what he is, but that’s what came to mind!

A nice front view. How calmly he sat there for his portrait 🙂

Abandoned Alaskan Bears in New Home

I come from a huge city, I am use to having 2 major zoos and an aquarium. I have seen everything from dolphins to beluga whales to koala and giraffe. My new hometown has a zoo that you can probably walk through in 15 minutes if you take your time. Last year however something wonderful happened. Two Kodiak bear cubs were abandoned and rescued in Alaska and somehow our tiny zoo got together big companies with money to build a state of the art habitat for them….the kind of things the ‘big name’ zoos have. Their habitat includes two huge areas connected by a bridge that they can walk over and people can walk under. One has a small pool and the other has trees and grass and a huge swimming hole in good weather. As they were just lazing around the other day, my friend just took this one photo for me. But here they are, the stars of the Wildwood Park and Zoo….Munsey and Boda. They were named after two of the men who rescued them. Sometimes their IS a happy ending to stories 🙂

Wild Geese That Fly….

I’m NOT the biggest fan of ‘The Sound of Music’ having watched it WAY too many times, but when I saw these photos, all I could think of was the verse from one of the songs, ‘wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings’. Ok so maybe no moon here but definitely wild geese that fly! These photos were taken by my friend with his iPhone by his house in Wisconsin. Enjoy!

White Deer

My friend was out one day and from his van saw this white deer in the distance! I have never had the pleasure of seeing one but am thankful that he and his iPhone were able to capture these photos. These were taken in North Central Wisconsin.

 

IMG_1584 copy 2Quite a rare and beautiful sight!

Goats on a Restaurant Roof

These are goats on Al Johnson’s restaurant roof in Sister’s Bay, Door County. Yes this is real grass on the restaurant roof and the goats live there (in the summer :)!)

Lakewood Zoo in Wisconsin

The Photos seen here are courtesy of Casey Ludwig, owner of Lakewood Zoo in Mountain, Wisconsin.

Lakewood Zoo is home to many formerly abused and unwanted animals. Casey gets them, and provides a loving home for them while nursing them back to health if need be. Some of these animal were in very small cages, can you imagine a tiger in a cage about the a little bigger than a large plastic indoor dog kennel? Yet that is how some of these animals lived before Casey took them to their new home.

Now Casey is trying to get a USDA license for the Zoo, in the mean time, Oconto County revoked his conditional use permit. Now the Town of Riverview issued Casey a ticket for having the animals and caring for them! This despite the fact that Lakewood Zoo has been there for a few years. The ticket effectively puts an end to getting the needed USDA license.

I have started a petition to get the Town of Riverview to recind this ticket which is ridiculous to begin with. These animals are well cared for and the Zoo is a nice place to visit. People get to see lions and tigers and bears and other animals as well, and these animals get a good home. Summer is when the Zoo makes it’s money to care for the animals, and as they are closed now…no money is coming in.

Please visit the petition site and sign the petition to help us out in this fight to save Casey’s animals, you can do so here;
