According to OCSO spokeswoman Michele Nicholson, the supervisor told her they do not have pet food or animal feeders in their back yard, but they do border wetlands and military property.
“They were just cruising through,” the supervisor told Nicholson. “My fence borders my whole back yard and separates us from the wilds, but not well.”
