Long Description:
Our friend was just a few feet away from his goal, the north side of the Farm to Market road, but this is a fairly busy highway, near County Road 1449, and judging by oncoming vehicles, he wasn't going to make it. Scooped up and relocated to the brush, hopefully, he kept on going.
