    That's you.

    You don't speak for anyone else who may see an elk and panic.

    What possible reason would be for them to do such thing?
    There's a whole world of possibilities. But hey, if this story fits your narrative and gives you another opportunity to drub on ICE and CBP and Trump, enjoy.
    And don't follow up for any of the details missing in this amateur report.

    Big Foot would explain it. Is it called Big Foot up in Canada? Or is it Yeti?

    I have not said one word about ICE, CBP and Trump. Just you. Ironic since you said it fits my narrative when it's your narrative that it's all about Trump to us.

    Well, except for the pictures of the family in the British press.

    Option #1: Stop assuming everyone else is as ignorant as you choose to be.

    Option #2: Avoid ignorance by: 1)Reading the the article 2) Looking to the British press to see how they are reporting the story... 3) see pictures of the family... etc.

An hour or so later, I had to pay them a couple hundred dollars, finally.. some type of temporary work visa just to go do my job. They don't like Americans coming up and working there.

    True story!

Where were they going in the first place and how long would anyone with a brain drive along on some uncharted road to nowhere wit a 3 month old?

    There's more to this story. But hey, it's chum to attack ICE and Trump and muh, orange man bad.


    God, that WaPo has gone down the toilet.
    I liked that part too... "gee officer, an animal went in front of us right at this specific intersection that MADE US turn onto a different road and that we did not know where it lead, but we continued driving down the road anyway"... What the ****?
