News Briefs: Animals where they shouldn't be

Animals where the neighbors think they shouldn't be:
Pot-Bellied Pig Stench Causes Neighborhood Ruckus  
The stench coming from Moo, Hoot, Quack and Ribbet, a foursome of pot-bellied pigs living it up in a suburban neighborhood backyard, has neighbors fuming mad.

Animal politely leaves place where it shouldn't be:
Deer gets on, off city bus
 The bus was carrying one female passenger when the deer crashed through the windshield of it. "The driver immediately stopped the bus,"  Yoder said. "He opened the door and the deer just walked off the bus."

Animals that make people grateful for previous animals that were where they weren't supposed to be:
Invasive "Crazy Ants" are displacing fire ants
"When you talk to folks who live in the invaded areas, they tell you they want their fire ants back," said LeBrun. "Fire ants are in many ways very polite. They live in your yard. They form mounds and stay there, and they only interact with you if you step on their mound."
LeBrun said that crazy ants, by contrast, "go everywhere." They invade people's homes, nest in crawl spaces and walls, become incredibly abundant and damage electrical equipment.

Animal comes to its senses about being where it shouldn't be:
Escaped raccoon breaks back into zoo
  "Clearly the grass wasn't greener on the other side."
