RE: OT: Re: Critters
Since we are on the topic of animal encounters related to being 'on the job'... I once worked as a cable installer for the same company I work for today. I was running a new cable outlet for a customer in an older farm house in a rural part of our serving area. This big old farm house had a lot of cats at one time or another, as I was about to find out. I entered the crawlspace, which was quite spacious as far as crawl spaces go, and the opening was large enough I didn't have to bring my flashlight out right away. As I ventured into the back of the house, I started feeling something crunchy, yet soft, as I crawled in... I reached to my belt for my flash light and had a look... I was smack dab in the middle of anywhere between 200 - 400 bird skeletons and feathers. I had a small problem with crawlspaces before then due to a large spider infestation... But guess what I think of them now. Can't get me inside them unless they are brand new.

At SRI in Menlo Park, the squirrels were always keen for that tasty grey cable whenever it was run where they could get it. I wish I had a moose-and-cable story. Sorry.
