My most exciting wildlife encounter at the front door has probably been a moth, which is hardly the stuff of urban legends. My mom once had trouble opening her door and thought the corner of the mat had flipped up — turned out to be a king snake. And our family’s St. Bernard ran away one 4th of July (spooked by fireworks) to huddle, growling, on my best friend’s porch. But no bears. Not even a cub.
What’s the most interesting critter you’ve ever found at your front door?
