lost baby in the backyard

Isaac came in to tell me there was a new kind of animal in the backyard that looks like a nutria. He said it scared him by moving quickly when he PET IT’S HEAD. haha! no fear Isaac?

Sure enough it was a baby nutria. The tiniest I’ve seen.

The chickens were checking it out. All images can be clicked on for a closer look.

I tried to move it across the street to the pond but it just sat there and started to come back toward me. All while a big, stray tom cat was sauntering up. So I carried it back to my backyard and set it where we found it and left it. Hopefully mom will find it again.
