Today’s “Fun Friday” post comes from my recent Florida trip. More specifically, while visiting Myakka River State Park (one of my favorite places to photograph in Florida) I came upon an amusing sight … wild turkey and raccoons, both busy foraging at a couple of the park’s feral hog traps:
Feral hogs have been a big problem in Myakka River State, for several years. A few years ago, the park began trapping them to remove them from the park. But as you can see, other critters have been visiting the traps, too! Although I didn’t see very many of the destructive hogs this time, I did spot a single hog as it rooted along the bank of the Myakka River:
Coming up … more Florida travel pics, along with some early spring Missouri wildflowers.
