wild animal life, but it will run

There isn't any vast amount of
money realized from the fur business

here, where the winters are comparatively
mild and pleasant, the
furs on the animals 'aren't" as
heavy and as good as they are
further North.
In this section, there are two
kinds of squirrels?the gray squirrel
and the fox squirrel. Of course
that's not mentioning the flying
squirrel such as can be found in
abundance in this area.
When it comes to foxes, there
are gray and red foxes roaming
the jungles of this county.

most ferocious animal though
hardly any more ferocious than
a buck deer if you get one
