Where not to dump tank water

Maintenance guy came yesterday to service all my tanks
He asked where he could dump out the dirty tank water
so with out thinking I said : just dump it in the garden
forgetting I live in the mountains and the bears are coming out
more at night !

well this morning I found big scratch marks in the dirt where the water was dumped, and 2 real big paw prints and just looking at the imprint in the dirt it's amazing how long those claws are ,

now knowing how close to the house they will come , I need to think twice where dirty tank water is dumped
don't need that bugger climbing in one of my windows

Yeow.

The only thing we have to worry about are coyotes. My grandmother swore she saw a black panther once though. @_@

Every one around here has a black panther story. I don't know if they actually live in North Mississippi though.

You must have a huge tank or a lot of them to need a maintenance guy.

I don't think I could ever have too many to maintain myself. I kinda enjoy it. Haha

Yikes! The only thing I have to worry about coming near my house is snakes. I don't think I could live where predatory mammals can sneak up at night!!

I hope I don't encounter a snake in my yard. There have been a large amount of pet snakes found in hawaii recently.
