We still have wild animals here. We have opossum and things like that. It's a funny thing. I used to hear people talk about deer. In all the years that I've lived in this area I never saw a live deer. There's more deer up at Ft. Belvoir now than there ever was when I lived there fifty years ago. I saw one go across the road one night down near Davidson Airfield. I almost hit him. On my way down to the Lazy Susan. Five cars just barely missed him. Came right out of the woods. With those hooves they've got, they couldn't grab hold of the concrete. They were slippin' and a-slidin', darn near scared the heck out of us. We could have gotten killed if we hit one of them. I never saw any of the foxes, any of these animals that people claimed they saw, but I never saw any of these things. I think animals are coming in now.
