Of all the beings that are NOT thriving, the javelina are defying the odds. So far in this year’s breeding season since March, we have counted now seven generations of babies which seems like just too many. Unwittingly, our critters’ feeding station perhaps has contributed to their numbers as well as a departure from their normal migration up and down the mountain. So, we decided that if we raised the platform the skunks, raccoons, deer, coyote, and grey foxes could still partake, but the absence of the goodies might move the pigs on their way. It is worth a try, and we will let you know if we are successful.
