Comment of the Week

“One day I decided to have a feast of various meats cooked on a shovel head over the fire and when I got full I stopped cooking some chicken that was just cooked on the outside. It ended up on the ground somehow; I think I accidentally knocked over the shovel head after leaving it with the chicken on it sitting on a couple tree branches. My camp was frequented by wildlife looking for food (for example I pretty much had an ongoing war with a family of raccoons – ended up finding one trapped in a dumpster and taking advantage of its helplessness to hit it with some rocks after I got sick of them trying to bluff me out of my camp, sneak up on me, surround me, steal my food etc.) and a chipmunk came over to the chicken and started eating it, clawing through the outside with both “hands” and going for the raw stuff underneath.”
