Did the goats break in to the feed bin? Was the mantis the ringleader? Sucker is huge! What's the rest of the story!? ;o)

Re: Enquiring Minds
We were allowing the goats to walk through the house and climb into the food bin in an attempt to desensitize them and get them used to the presence of humans (and the smell of dogs).

The giant mantis was just a fluke. I've never seen one around here before.

The mantis looks like an escapee from a sci-fi flick ;o)
