So our house has a long driveway down the side which is completely full of trees and low lying bushes. It is pretty dense, and you cant see our house through it, on the other side is a funeral home. There is a side door that opens up to a little porch at the end of the drive way where we keep all of our recycling and garbage. I just threw some cans out and when I came inside my husband (just coming inside through the other back door with the dog) asked if I saw the man in the bushes. I said no and started to freak out - apparently when he was out with the dog he saw a man walk down our drive way and wander into the bushes/trees and sit down and start smoking a cigarette.
We turned on the alarm and went upstairs and were looking out the window and we could see him sitting in the trees smoking and rustling around.
We called the cops and as we were talking to them, the guy got up and wandered back down our drive way and started walking down the street, so I went outside to check things out. He left a plastic container half full of roasted chicken in the bushes, with a reusable shopping bag for the grocery store at the corner across the street. There was some other trash in there as well.
Now the thing that freaks me out even more - we are always finding chicken bones in our yard and we can never figure out where they are coming from. We assume it is animals bringing it in - we have spotted a raccoon, possum, groundhog, and skunk in our yard in the past. NOW it seems quite possible this guy camps out there pretty often and we just dont notice him - it was REALLY hard to see him through all of the leaves and tree cover, so its possible we just never see him - and he leaves food all the time and thats where all of the bones come from AND probably why we have so many animals scavenging around.
