A large predator could enter the family home if it wanted to.
When cows want air conditioning in the barn, they will knock a wall down. 6 inches of concrete is about the only barrier that works.
I think that is either a Dutch or French flag. Is that a clue?
It would be nice if the OP came back to clarify. I had visions of a guy riding on a mountain highway, caused to stop by fog, pitching his predator proof tent to sleep for the night. During the night there is rustling noises outside. Could be a bear, or an elk, maybe a raccoon. I have BTDT and wondered how easy it would be for a large animal to shred my tent.
Time, places and dates on request. Bike details too.
Had a skunk come up to the tent one night. A skunk don't have to spray anything for you to know it's a skunk. It scratched around on the nylon a little bit, I "gently" tapped it with my boot a couple times, from inside the tent, and it moved on.
I was told by an old timer if you grab a skunk by the tail, and keep his hind legs off the ground, it can't spray you. A couple times I was tempted to see if it was true, but I always chickened out.
I got some of that stink on a pair of blue jeans years ago. I was sent home to change because it was so bad.
I went home, showered, changed clothes and threw the stinky clothes on the cement floor in the garage. Didn't want to mix them with other laundry cause I thought I may have to burn them.
That afternoon when I went to get them, there was barely any odor! Washed and dryed them and they were fine. Now I didn't get sprayed on directly, I walked through some brush that was sprayed when the foreman on the ranch I was working at, shot the skunk because he thought it was rabid.
(He shot it, but I was low man on the totem pole so I had to bury it.)
