ok, here is a goofy thread, what is the worst animal u have, or heard of someone encountering on the trail..... funny stories preffered, try and keep the gruesome ones on the down low haha
i think the worst ones around here are badgers, they are a)vicious little bastards haha, and b) they dont die, or run or anything
my ultimate fear on the trails tho is cougars, bears dont really bother me but cougars hit my spidey sences wierd, i must say tho, thay are my favorite animmal, but before i hyjack my own thread haha
i also rode with a kid from texas one time, he said armidillo's were bad little creatures to, is it tryue, or is he doint ht esame thing about armadillo's that we do about igloo's and beavers?

Your turn( i have a feeling this thread is going nowhere but w.e)

My boyfriend came across a wasp nest, and got stung twice on his arm and twice on his back. His arm swelled up to like twice the size... Nasty little things.

oh, thats like a was building out a jump here and there was a hole in the ground, it was a little bit smaller then a gopher hole, so i didnt think anything of it, well bout the 3rd shovel ful i had exposed a hole in the ground, almost like the hollow part of a gopher hole, so no biggie, the fourth shovel full was a piece of a ground hornets nest, havent even been back to get my shovel haha

I see rabbits occasionally while building jumps. I saw a hawk once too, that was cool.

Do weekend dog-walkers count as critters?
They're those humanoid-esc like creatures that escort canines around the hillsides, characterized by an obnoxious tendency of refusal to move out of the way despite polite notification of you [the cyclists] presence which shortly after results in their favourite canine companion being run over by an all too annoyed cyclist.

Dog walker's dogs are probably the largest critter I've had the pleasure of running over, but I've only encountered two that required me to pass them over-the-top.

Out here in Az, it's rattlesnakes. They are like firefly's. They are everywhere. It's hard to go on a nigt ride and not see one. My wife ran over one that was alive and in the process of gulping down a rodent. Suffice to say it was not happy!! The scary thing is that she was yelling at me and my bro to stop. We couldn't figure out why and when we did, he was about 2 feet away from us. Zoiks!! Just recently came a cross a Bobcat. He was not happy to see me though and took off. I love seeing stuff in the wild....
