I love wildlife and nature and I'm blessed with a backyard that's frequently visited by deer, turkey, fox, turtles, tons of birds, and those cunnin' little chipmunks and squirrels.

I also spend a lot of money annually on seed for the birds and cracked corn when the ducks and ducklings arrive.

While I can spend a lot of my time enjoying these wild creatures and taking their pictures, I still appreciate the fact that they are "wild" creatures incapable of "loving me" the way my dog does.

This woman had to learn that lesson the hard way.

I really don't recommend trying this at home.
