More Kid for the Wild Animal Stories

In every school Walkin’ Jim visits he shares his stories of his encounters with America’s wildlife. He also gets to hear the kid’s wonderful stories of their own experiences with wildlife. Walkin’ Jim invites you to share your own true wild animal stories here. Please tell us in your own words where you were, what happened, what kind of animal, and how you felt about it. We’ll post it on this page and share it with everyone.

Please…only send us true stories of things that have happened with you and wild animals. Thank you.

The Story: One time when we were drivin on a road, we saw a porcupine climbing a tree.  I think it climbed into the tree because it eats bark. We got out of the car and it stayed in the tree.  It was big as a bowling ball.  It was grey.  And then we drove back home.

The Story: My sister, my mom, and I were walking to our car. It was 12 o’clock and we were at our neighbors house. My sister was having trouble locking the door, so I decided to walk to the car, which wasn’t that far away. So I was walking and I turn the corner and in front of me is this medium size mountain lion! I was so freaked out! Then, it did this bone shivering growl, hiss thing. And that just put me off the edge! I know you aren’t supposed to run off screaming, but that is exactly what I did. I ran and we all got into the house all safe and sound! My dad came up to get us because we were so scared!
