hey all.. now i have something for you that if i didnt see it myself i wouldnt believe it.. but when i was leaving newt graham lock and dam (18) i ran across some animals that i have never seen in my life.. as soon as i came out of the curves leading to the dam area and straightened out on 71st, 5 animals came walking across the road right in front of me.. to the point were i was stopped and they were maybe 10 feet from my vehicle.. this was in plain daylight on a nice day so i got an incredible look at them for about 20 seconds or so.. my camera was in my back pack in the back of the vehicle and i wasnt about to get out of the truck with them that close.. plus it happened to quick. but at first i thought maybe badgers or wolverines because like ive said, i have never seen these animals.. when i got home i got on the ole puter and did a search of the two.. i hate to say it but the badgers in no way whatsoever resembled what i saw.. but the wolverine photos were a dead match.. these things were all brown with "wild" or "rough" looking hair.. they all had a bit of an arch in their backs and the biggest one was just over knee level on me.. the biggest one seemed to be the alpha male because the others were following its every move.. they started to go across and the big one turned back and then turned back again going the direction it was originally heading.. all the smaller ones were mimicking its movements almost exactly.. after reading a bit about them i found that a dominate males territory can be about 200 miles.. so like cougars i could see them wandering a long ways to get themselves territory with a river being a natural route.. i was wondering if anyones seen something like that around there or not.. zach, my fishing buddy, told me thats not the first time hes heard something like that out in that area.. but im telling you guys, i saw this for a bit of time as clear as i possibly could.. and i WOULD NOT want to run into those things on the bank with no weapon and bait sitting right by me.. they looked FREAKIN MEAN!!!! just a heads up my friends.. and im going to jump the gun by saying alot of you are going to say i saw something else or just full of crap. but just tell me this, what was it i saw? and regardless of what they were, i would not want to meet them up close..
