It's a zoo out there

Post by leslie(nova scotia) »

With the walls closing in as the snow gets deeper ones mind wanders. Got to thinking about animals. More precisely those that I have found detecting. Sure that it has crossed your mind while out detecting in the woods of what we may encounter. These however never display a danger as they all came from the under world!

Haha...great collection. It is remarkable to be reminded just how many finds (even coins like our 'wren' farthing) feature depictions of animals. I also notice this in youtube videos about mudlarking adventures....lots of animals in one form or another.

You mention meeting animals while out and about. Over here in northern France I encounter wild boar and it has become apparent that the wolves are also moving in to the forest. What encounters have you had yourself, Leslie? (And i do appreciate that the most irksome and dangerous animals we are ever liable to meet detecting are human beings, so aside from those... :)) )

As for animals I have encountered while detecting...in the NWT a bear, NFLd moose, and in NS deer, weasels,fox, ground hogs, coyote and porcupines. Only one that was scary was the bear!
