It was the darnedest thing. I was maybe 7 or 9 years old and I was biking to my friends house in our neighborhood. I was about to turn into his driveway when I noticed there was this large brown or black furry animal chillin’ on the side of a tree. It was kinda like it was hugging it. It had a big flat tail. At first I was like, “woah, what’s that thing?” Then I was like, “this is scary!” So I went inside and told my friend about it and we went outside to look at it but it was gone. But as we were standing outside someone drove by in a car and they said, “did you just see that thing on that tree a few minutes ago? I think it was a beaver.” I think it was a beaver, too.
Also, one time that same friend found a turtle outside behind his house so he spray painted the letter “K” on it’s shell. Then we found the same turtle a year later in our yard with the letter “K” still there. Crazy.
