Man Films How Many Wild Animals Are Using This Log Bridge, Is Surprised It’s That Many Different Kinds

Robert Bush Sr. loves the great outdoors and he has found a brilliant way to show everyone why. The Pennsylvania man put a hidden camera next to a log bridge near his home. All year round, it records wild animals crossing the river, exposing the critters in their natural habitat when they think nobody’s looking. These animal videos are like a window into nature. A digital one. And it’s mesmerizing.

Here are a few compilations showing what animals Robert has already captured with his cam

Robert shares the animal crossing footage on the Facebook group Bob’s Pennsylvania Wildlife Camera. It already has 40K members and we highly suggest you join as well. The types of animals that get featured there are so diverse. Deers, raccoons, squirrels, bobcats, beavers, even one slightly clumsy bear have made their appearances.

“I love the outdoors and wildlife and I am not anti-hunting,” Robert wrote on the group. “This page is not about hunting and I will not post any hunting pictures or videos … this page is about the beautiful animals in the mountains of Pennsylvania.” The man also warned he won’t tolerate hunting pictures and talks in the comments. It’s a place to simply enjoy amusing videos.

Also, Robert keeps the exact location of the famous log a secret. Kudos for that. We don’t need anyone interrupting the woodland animals or the feed. So it’s as authentic as it gets.

The camera records day and night, all year round

After his initiative went viral, Robert shared his thoughts behind it

Walking through the woods or over a log bridge (in this case), it gently reminds us that it is not all about humans. We share this precious earth! And it's not all of us and our egocentric view of the world.

Thank you Kate for your comment. The tragedy is that vast majority of people are either indifferent to the issue of preservation of nature, or simply hold an opinion the "we" are superior species and can treat animals and their habitat as "we" deem it fit. If we do not speak out against cruelty to animals (any animals domesticated and wild alike) and against plunder and destruction of the environment we all will equally pay for it.

So much thanks to Bob, the photos and video are magnificent. Keeping them hidden treasures is the most appropriate thing for them. To be able to adore them from afar and know they are completely safe is a truly unselfish act. I absolutely love all of the various species that are using the little bridge and it's beautiful that we have the opportunity to watch them safely for them and us. Wishing Bob many more safe journeys for him and the wildlife.

Cool! My apologies to Pennsylvania but I just never thought of it as a place with such diverse wildlife.
