PETA MESSAGES MEMBERS TO HARASS OSWALD'S BEAR RANCH?

The simple answer is yes..

After seeing this post on the Oswald's Bear Ranch wall, I had to respond..

Upon looking at the facebook profile of this person who posted, I learned she was NOT even from this area and chances are she has never even been to the bear ranch in Newberry, Michigan.. 

This morning I got a private message from her asking if what PETA was saying was even true.. Confirmation that she in fact had never been there.. 

So PETA is sending messages to their supporters asking them to harass and go after this upper Michigan bear ranch, even though they have never been there? Sounds to me as if PETA needs to be neutered..

I was happy to respond to her message and explained what this bear ranch does.. I told her these bear cubs do NOT have mothers, because all were rescued from the wild. If they tried putting these cubs with other adult bears, they might kill them..

I was happy when she said "Thank You, I'll Donate".. It is only one person, but it is a start..

TELL PETA TO GO SUCK ON SOME BEAR SHIT..

Did This EMT Just Try Bribing Me At A Landfill Tire Fire?



I went to get a few simple videos of the fire trucks coming and going from the Niagara Development LLC landfill tire fire in Quinnesec, Michigan today.. 

It quickly turned into something much different! Did she just say was EMS and that I couldn't be there? Next I think she crossed the line by telling me that IF I left, she would give me a huge story. She insisted there was no fire here and I should "think about it"..

 Watch the video, then share it with your thoughts about "it".. Did she just try to bribe me???

It now comes to my attention she works for this local landfill as security but she is also an EMT for the local area.. She may even work for a competitor ambulance service, other than "Integrity Ambulance" which she tried telling me about IF I left the scene.. She acted like I was the idiot!

She obviously doesn't know much about rights as she told me I didn't have the right to film her without asking.. Yet before I was even near her, she had taken my picture and my van too.. Watch this video, then come over to My Facebook Page and discuss it!

I TOOK HIS PANHANDLING SIGNS WHEN HE WAS IN WALMART!

Near Walmart & Tractor Supply, Iron Mountain, Michigan - After many messages to my facebook page, I took the drive to see if the PANHANDLER was still there and yes he was.. Things are about to get real interesting!

I decided a different approach should be taken this time, rather than just confronting him right off the bat.. So instead I sat back and watched, long enough to see him take a break from his job. He dropped his sign as if it was trash and walked away.

I followed him into Walmart where he was buying sun glasses (2 or 3 pairs), a phone card(?), snacks and a Monster Energy Drink. This is when I had to leave to pick up my wife from work at 3:30pm, but before I did.. I TOOK HIS SIGNS HE LEFT SITTING!!!

I actually had 2 signs there, yep I took them both. When I got back he had made another sign and was busy at work. I watched some more and thought about confronting him when a woman (w/kid) walked up and made his day. So much so that he packed it up and left, back to Walmart he goes..

That is when I caught him smoking another cigarette and on his smart phone texting or chatting with someone.. Then my phone rang, you can even hear me say I am going to confront him and then he walks into Walmart...... Grrr......

THIS MICHIGAN COUNTY IS AUCTIONING OFF A BRIDGE, TRAIN TRACKS & A MINE TOO?

What would you say if I told you I had a bridge to sell you? Well I don't, but Dickinson County where I live in Michigan does.. 


You may think I am joking, but you can place a min bid of only $450 on this "Private Bridge Over The Sturgeon River" in Felch, Michigan.. Imagine the awesome fishing spots to be had or maybe you can be a troll!
 
Description & Comments - " This parcel is 66 feet wide (east-west) and 278.3 feet north-south. It runs along Sturgeon Ln and crosses over the river. The parcel contains an aging BRIDGE that crosses the Sturgeon River and provides access to several properties. Those properties are likely holders of either an express, implied or prescriptive easement .... which means that they probably have a legal right to use the bridge, but no obligation to maintain it. A purchaser may assume the legal responsibility for its repair. "

 WANT TO BUY AN OLD MINE SITE WITH DEEP SHAFTS? For a $700 min bid, you could pick up "10.65 Acres At The Pewabic Mine Location" in Iron Mountain, Michigan!



"This property is located due east of iron Mountain at the old Pewabic Mine site. That's right ... you can own your own iron mine ! Properties like this come with a certain amount of potential liability, so please be aware that the property includes a mine shaft .... This is nice wooded property with some scenic views of the panorama over Iron Mountain and Kingsford to the south. It is high and dry, and the local radio and TV station towers are just a few hundred feet to the north. There are no buildings on this property."

NO BRIDGES OR MINES, EH? ARE YOU INTO TRAINS? For only $1,500 min bid you can pick up this "Railroad Right-Of-Way" in Breitung Township!

 

"This parcel was a Wisconsin & Michigan railroad right-of-way. It may have been abandoned, but that is unclear. It runs east to west, and across the entire NE 1/4 of Section 5. That would start (on the east) at the end of Dawn South Lake Road, and run west to the centerline of the Section. Curiously, the tracks are still in place here, and these have usually been harvested by the railway prior to abandonment. So you may wish to confirm the location of the line and question any party with a contractual right (or easement) to use it before disturbing the infrastructure. There is substantial value to the steel track and the gravel bed. Whether you would have a right to remove and sell them is a question you will want to be sure of the answer to prior to bidding. If this is only land ownership and you don't have ownership of the actual track material, you could end up in deep poo-poo if you tried to remove them. Please make sure what you're bidding on here, folks.

This parcel may be subject to utility, road, driveway right-of-way, or other easements which could allow third parties access to the property. Easements are not extinguished by tax foreclosure and foreclosed parcels are sold subject to these preexisting rights, if any..

I'm not making this up, those are quoted words from the website.. "you could end up in deep poo-poo if you tried to remove them"?

SO YOU DON'T WANT A BRIDGE, A MINE OR EVEN TRAIN TRACKS, EH? SO WHAT ABOUT LAND UNDER A ROAD IN VULCAN?? 

A $600 min bid might get you a "Parcel Located Under A Street" in Vulcan, Michigan! 

"This parcel is mostly or completely located UNDER Spruce Street in Vulcan. It is being sold subject to the rights of others to use that road. In other words, it's of little practical use. And that's why we have it. If there is land that is not under the road ... it would be a sliver located east of it ... where the pine trees are. We think.
This parcel is too small to be practically useful under most circumstances. Many times such parcels are the result of survey or property transfer errors which create small orphaned slivers of land. These parcels are frequently too small to allow construction or any other practical use. They often have no road frontage or legal means of access. These parcels can often lead to adverse claims or encroachments by neighboring land owners which can be complicated legal issues to resolve."

I'VE GOT IT! I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED FOR ALMOST $45,000 AT RIVER POINTE PARKWAY IN KINGSFORD, MICHIGAN!

  Unfinished Condo Project. 32 Incomplete Units. - "This is a sale of development rights for 32 unbuilt units (16 duplexes) at the "River Pointe" condo project in Kingsford. This is NOT a sale of "land", but instead the right to build the 16 duplex buildings that are required by the Master Deed, which you can find recorded at the County Register of Deeds office in Iron Mountain. If you'd like to have a look at the structure required by the Master Deed, there are already 5 duplex units built here that are examples. This project sits along the banks of the Menominee River, with Wisconsin right across the way. The seller reserve the right to create a deed restriction, prohibiting the "splitting" of these unbuilt units for resale prior to the physical construction and issuance of certificates of occupancy for each two unit duplex building. This would permit a successor developer the opportunity to build one at a time, but would discourage speculators from trying to "flip" condos that do not even exist."

CURRENTLY THERE ARE 23 AUCTIONS LISTED JUST FROM DICKINSON COUNTY, MICHIGAN..
MANY ARE HOMES IN ROUGH SHAPE OR LAND THAT IS MOSTLY UNUSABLE.. HOWEVER, SOME ARE GOOD INVESTMENTS AND PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BID AND OWN IT.. WILL YOU BE BIDDING ON ANYTHING? Be at the Holiday Inn Marquette on August 25, 2017 at 12:00 PM.

Look At ALL Central UP Available Properties Here!

The next time you hear of someone offering a bridge for sale, you may just listen a little closer.. Eh?

Cougar Spotted Near Iron Mountain, Michigan?

On her morning walk near the Millie Hill Estates in Iron Mountain, Michigan she saw this..


This morning I got quite a few messages asking me if I heard about the COUGAR being spotted and seen on Millie Hill early Monday morning. Apparently this person took the picture (above) I posted.. 

I called "anonymous" this morning and asked if she was the person posting about the cougar on Millie Hill.. She said yes she was but she said that photo was just one she got from google because it shows exactly what she saw.. I believe her, read her story below as told to me by phone..

 She told me she walks often alone and has never seen anything like it before. She said she say a SNAKE just a minute before, so her eyes were glued to the ground looking for more and never saw the cougar until she got really close.. She said she froze with fear, not knowing exactly what she should do or not do.. She said the cat turned and trotted away, sort of a fast paced walk.. 

She described how its ears weren't tall, but more short and stubby. The body was slender and colored like a deer, with a long tail that followed behind just like a cat.. She told me that she quickly walked away and when she got her phone she googled "cougar" and that picture came up, she said that is exactly what she saw.

SEEN BEFORE IN TOWN?

Just last year or maybe earlier this year (I can't remember) someone in Iron Mountain on E Street reported a cougar walking around the neighborhood in the middle of the afternoon, they never found it but I thought that was strange.

Quite a few years ago I remember someone reporting one downtown near the Moose Jackson Cafe, someone saw it run from the dumpster area and said within seconds it was to the train tracks and gone.

I myself have seen 2 cougars, once near Crystal Falls, Michigan that I even reported to the DNR and was laughed right out of their office.. A few years later (maybe 7 years ago) I saw one cross the road near the US-2/M-95 junction as it was chasing a deer..

Cougars are definitely around here and as people continue to get out walking and exploring new areas, more will likely be seen. Many believe these cougars are really no threat, unless you have a dog our walking with you not on a leash or maybe one running loose around your yard nears a wooded area.. For the most part, cougar attacks on people are very uncommon.

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A COUGAR NEAR WHERE YOU LIVE? GIVE THIS A SHARE!!
