ST. JOHN, USVI EPISODE 5

st. john has quite a few donkeys, goats, chickens and pigs on the loose. the donkeys are extremely friendly... here's one making her move...i'm coming closer...
snorgle, snorgle!
yup, she stuck her head right inside the jeep! here's a baby donkey sleeping in the road... one has to drive quite slowly on st. john due to the steep roads and animals...
there seem to be goats everywhere. i saw this herd going down the road to the soccer field every morning to keep the grass perfect.
and we did see one feral pig... we didn't stop to pet her though!

That's amazing ! Are populations controlled ? Seems to me they could become a nuisance but they are undoubtedly fun to have around !
CUTE !

Love the company!
Its a good reminder, when forced to share the road, of how weve gotten so used to expecting to be able to own the road.
The pig looks slightly intimidating!

miss m, i don't know, but i suppose, or they'd be rampant! thanks for the comment.

sophie, along with driving on the left, it was a challenge! we didn't get out to pet the pig, natch...
