I am familiar with the woodlot, but when I lived there, there was no sign posted like now indicating what it was. Likely because most of the area around there was still bush land.
Progress happens I guess, even in the good old Soo.
I remember asking my friend what people thought the police could do about a bear sighting, but I guess first thought is to call 911?
How do like the Soo? I imagine it must have been a big change from the south. I personally love the Soo and will likely end up back there in a few years although I no longer have any family there, my friend from grade 2 (sooooo many years) is still there and hopefully we can keep each other standing during retirement.
So this will be your first winter up there. THAT, I do not miss. I have memories of digging myself out the side door of the house after a good storm. Enjoy the town. It is a nice place.
Oh, I love it up here and hear that the winters are bad...however, as I tell people here..the South HAS bad winters as well *lol*
As for domestics, I find that here more people just let there dogs roam at large more. As for stray cats, I am sure there are lots around
and the South also have TONS of stray cats
I hate the aragonace.
