Let’s hope he doesn’t injure someone or doesn’t get hurt before he returns to his home or is transported by a trapper to a safe place outside of The Villages.
Probably looking for AC or pool.

I have had a garbage disposal for 30 + years and rarely had a problem and never one that required a plumber. If you use it properly and per the instructions you will have few problems. Don’t put corn husk in. Lol

Time for TV to get a little class.
It would also make life a little harder for the critters like rats, coyotes, raccoons, possums and bears to get to the trash. Not to mention the neighbors that let their dogs check out and pee on the bags.
Oh yeah, I so wish TV would get with the program & give us some of those fancy, special, upscale garbage cans. The ones that some folks leave at the curb practically all the time, while others leave them out on the driveway in front of the garage, and then some think they look great parked on the grass next to the broken down car. They really add a lot to the appearance of a neighborhood and would most definitely lend an upscale feel to TV. SMH

Same here, they're not that complicated (or expensive)...to install.

It can be a pain replacing one by yourself though, particularly if it's a larger one and you're holding it with one hand...while 'turning & locking it' with a large screwdriver in the other hand.

We have seen alligators, cayotes, possum, rodents, squirrels (in the hundreds), snakes...etc.....

15 years and not a torn bag or trash critter intervention!!!

Yes we have invaded their habitat.....for the past 20+ years and continue to do so.
I have had 2 in the past month. I think it was probably done by a dog or coyote but I have no idea

I will never understand why residents put garbage in the trash when a garbage disposal is equipped in every single home in TV.


Can't really put thinks like bones, fat etc etc down the garbage disposal unless you have one like Tim the Toolman Taylor put in
