GLOUCESTER CITY-Slow..... Deer Crossing!

WILDLIFE BEING SQUEEZED OUT OF ITS NATURAL HABITAT-
Years ago a bunch of us would drive 16 hours each fall to
Moosehead Lake in Maine to spend a week hunting deer. Most times we came back
empty handed. Now that I don't hunt the deer are coming to me. Life it seems is always that way.
Brian Cohan took this photo recently of a doe just taking a leisurely walk in the parking lot
of Gloucester City High School, Market Street and Route 130.
And just a few weeks ago, during the day, I saw a fox. It was just walking along the tree line out in the open by the high school football practice field. And we can’t forget the wild turkey that use to prance around near the high school. And just today Bill Bates sent in a photo of a beautiful hawk perched in a tree in Mount Ephraim.
No doubt we will continue to see more deer, fox, hawks and turkey as their habitat gets overrun by new housing and shopping malls.
Progress? Who needs it? Not the wildlife that is for sure.
