We are going over today for a walk, and we will conduct hog surveillance while we are there.;-)

Does anybody know if we are allowed to take dogs to Eden? I have looked all over the website and can't find a mention of a dog rule. We thought we should take a fearless boar hunting hounds with us for protection.:rotfl:

Kurt, thank so much for sharing that. I had tried to find it and was not successful. We will be down with our lab and she loves a new walk and we are very responsible pet walkers and would want to know the local restrictions.

What the heck is a "non-human primate of the genus Cebus"? :dunno:

"Registered service animals" couldn't have covered all the possible scenarios? We had to get specific about which monkeys are and are not allowed? :blink:

Wasn't aware there were humans outside the "homo" genus, but I'm so glad Florida's parks are prepared just in case! :D

Here's the deal.

Took the dogs to Eden, on leash.

We walked. We were not attacked by hogs.

Nobody pooped, therefore no cleanup.

It was fun.

Went home.

The end.

:wave:

that is truly amazing. seriously. dogs love to do a big stinky just for the heck of it whenever you take them anywhere outside of their own little yard. right when they find just the right spot, in the great wide open, front and center, close to people so they can have a proper audience.

Well, you know, maybe if we hadnt build on their land, or run them off of the property that they were living comfortably on, then we wouldn't have this problem. I'm no tree huggin person, but its sad when people are amazed when they see wildlife around here, and they think it is some sort of problem. I swear to you, if we don't bother them, they have nbo reason to bother us. However, it is very true that if youy do confront one of the pigs, especially the boars, because they are most territorial, you better hope you can run faster than it or your friend, because they can mess you up good.
just so you know we didnt build on their land those hogs arent native to this area or even the us they came over from europe in the early 1900's and are considered a nusance.

WOW... way to chime in kinda late on a thread. Most folks on this board know the history of hogs/pigs in this area. The more we develop, the more we see of them. They have been in this area, just about as long, if not longer, than white Anglo-Saxon humans. There is documentation of them in the area when Grayton Beach was first inhabited.
P.S. punctuation is your friend.
