This pretty much says it all. We have over an acre and a half of that. Yeah, it's just like the Hundred Acre Wood, only with angrier things with bigger teeth. And no kangaroos. We have deer, coyotes, raccoons, porcupines, bears, fisher cats, moose (allegedly--I've never seen one), and one German Shepherd and a Jack Russell-Australian Herder mix (The last two are ours).
