ZEBULON, N.C. — Over the past couple years, there has been an increase in armadillo sightings across the Carolinas, and officials with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission says it's due to climate change. Armadillos have been spotted in 23 counties across North Carolina, including Wake and Durham. Since 2007, there have been as many as 30 sightings of armadillos in Wake County. Greg Batts, an N.C. Wildlife biologist in Zebulon, said he documented two armadillos on the N.C. Highway 55 widening project in August in 2020. One had been run over by a car and another had a den near

I like armadillos... I like them a lot more than I do illegal aliens that become freeloaders and breed sows.

They do. It has nothing to do with climate change. First of all, the climate always changes- some cycles are decades-long, come centuries-long, some are multi-thousand years long, some are hundreds of thousands of years long, etc. Secondly, armadillos have been slowly expanding their range in the US naturally. No one imported them. They just are slowly migrating north while still having large populations in the south.

Armadillos are common in TN and have been ever since the first pair was able to get across the MS River. It has nothing to do with "climate change" TN and NC share a border. It is inevitable that they will move into new territory. Armadillos diet is 90% insects and their larvae. Maybe NC can completely eliminate insects from the state to prevent the dreaded armadillo from coming there?

I see no indication that climate change is affecting our country negatively. Most of us like warmer days; come to PA when the temperatures are frigid and the wind is blowing and you'll appreciate the climate change. We are blessed with ways to cool us but this will not be so if they implement only solar panels and wind turbines as our only energy!

The story alludes to the primary cause of all recent species migration - disruption and destruction of their natural habitat by humans seeking to isolate themselves from their own species.

Hundreds of them. Thousands! Traveling along back roads. On the shoulder. Only at night. All heading in an easterly direction. The Great Armadillo Migration has begun. Drive slowly! Save an armadillo, and your vehicle's suspension.

Possum on the half shell. There's no shortage of them in Florida, but most of them you actually see are dead. Roadkill slain by the wheel. I got a huge laugh from Jesper Parnevik (in the mid-'80s when he was playing on the Florida Tour, who saw something he never expected to see: a live armadillo on the golf course in Kissimmee. He thought they were all dead. For the man who has everything, in my library upstairs there is a small lift top can of roadkill armadillo, guaranteed not to contain over 10% gravel. The most valuable object in the household, it's been sitting there for thirty years undisturbed. It would really bum me out if it were not real. So like Pelosi, I ain't looking.

First as other areas grow in population the animals move or migrate. This has been going on for millennia. Some animals are attracted to the new habitats naturally. More food, easier water and better shelter. Climate Change is a hoax. Latest NASA study claims the last 14 years have actually cooled. I have a new vaccine and booster for Global Warming believers.

Armadillos huh? I remember very well when you didnt see deer in Anson county nc. Or turkeys. COYOTES. I even remember when there were no racoons.The wildlife people claim there are no cougars, but very reliable people have seen them. So, armadillos? OK. I wonder if there were any here 12000 years ago when we were UNDER AN ICE SHEET? Global warming melted that down, wonder if them industrious Covid point chippers caused that?

Armadillos originated in South America. They have steadily migrated North ever since the end of the last ice age, first to Central America, then Mexico, then Texas, then the rest of the Southern U.S. Legend has it that the got their first foothold in Florida when a gas station owner caught a couple in Texas and put them in a pen outside as a tourist draw, but the quickly dug their way out. They have continued to expand their territory in the U.S. during the past century due to lack of natural predators.

During the Great Depression, people ate Armadillos, calling them "Hoover Hogs." If people start resorting to eating Armadillos again because of the Biden meat shortages we should call them "Biden Burgers."

Armadillos gotta do what armadillos gotta do, travel the roads like hitch hiking blues men. Always in search of softer ground to dig into no rocky areas for them. I would guess the eastward migration is due to all the foot pounding at the southern border from the invaders into Texas it disturbs their hunting grounds it's like herding cattle to move on a drive. It's nature not climate that moves them. FGW

Some armadillos are naturally infected with leprosy, and armadillos are the only other animal besides humans to host the leprosy bacillus, according to Smithsonian Magazine. Still think they’re cute?

The 'Swarmadillos' crossing our southern border are infected with leprosy as well as other diseases. And as for eating armadillos, since they come wrapped in a shell, how about Biden Burritos. I suppose Biden Tacos would be more accurate.

The goofiness continues. Get this - after giving stats for several years: Officials have not yet updated the number of total armadillo sightings in 2021, but said sightings have increased even more. So they have no real clue. Weather can come in several year batches. Then it can suddenly change. That is not “climate change” - and what these zealots really mean when they say “climate change” is that humans caused it. Rubbish. Some fool probably brought some armadillos into the Carolinas and they have been multiplying. Sounds as though the cure is on the highways.

Armadillos are common here in South Carolina too. Our two very curious greyhounds tried to get friendly with one but it hissed at them and ran for cover. They were all over Florida too when I was growing up there in the 50’s and 60’s.

Armadillos are harmless unless you run over one with a motorcycle. It's the migrants from New York City that should cause concern. If you've already called Greta, it's okay, she hasn't had a good trip in a while.

Well, they are good eating, although a bit of a challenge to skin. I used to hunt them in Florida, and my mother would bake them whole, fill the body cavity with stuffing like a turkey, cover with foil and bake. Excellent meat.

Beware North Carolinians; I've observed the ravages of killer armadillos and their beta variants in Texas for a little over six decades. Aside from destroying entire middle class suburbs, they will devour small children and family poodles; plus, they have been known to breed with feral hogs, as they are randy little buggers, which pushes their population and associated ravages to pandemic levels. Caution: If you shoot one, they can jump six feet in the air and then split in two once they hit the ground. FJB is leading an armored rat inoculation development effort, which involves outlawing internal combustion engines within 6 months to stop the spread and flatten the curve. It's for the chirren, doncha know.

Re #47. They are a bit unusual in their meat. One end, IIRC, the front legs is a dark red meat similar to beef, while the other end, IIRC, the rear legs, are a white meat, more reminscent of pork. Baked on their back, whole, body cavity filled with turkey stuffing, and covered with foil, they are good eating, with two very different kinds of meat. We tried about everything when we were kids, and my sainted mother would go ahead and cook up whatever we brought home. Racoon was not repeated, not good, but we all agreed that armadillo was well worth shooting, easily as good or better than rabbit and IMO, better than squirrel, which is pretty good, too. We were warned off of opossum by our black neighbors.....said that it stunk badly when cooking, and you had to be really desperate to eat 'possum. We took their word for it, never tried.

Armadillos and coyotes- used to never see them unless you were west of the Mississippi River. Now they're regularly seen on the east coast. But it's not because of "climate change".

The president is expected to use the issue of voting rights to call for reform of the Senate filibuster rules and condemn Republicans, according to a Politico preview of the speech. “We are doubling down, kicking it into another gear, we are going right to the belly of the beast, or ground zero, for voter suppression, voter subversion and obstruction,” White House director of the Office of Public Engagement Cedric Richmond told Politico.

Texas scientists rolled out a new COVID-19 vaccine, saying it’s patent-free and can be produced by any manufacturer in any country. The vaccine, called Corbevax, was developed by the Texas Children’s Hospital and Baylor College of Medicine. It has successfully passed human trials as safe and effective. The new treatment is based off protein-based technology that has been used in other vaccines for decades and it does not use MRNA. India has already authorized production of 100 million doses per month of the new vaccine. Meanwhile, Texas scientists say not-for-profit vaccines will help defeat COVID-19 quicker.

An American Airlines passenger has sparked a firestorm by complaining about a pilot whose case bore a sticker critical of Joe Biden. Dana Finley Morrison, a Missouri-based fraternity and sorority worker, was flying from St Lucia to Miami on Saturday when she spotted the pilot's 'Let's Go Brandon' sticker. The slogan began to circulate in September, when a Nascar reporter misheard the chants of 'F*** Joe Biden', and it has since become an anti-Biden rallying cry. Morrison tweeted to American Airlines, saying: 'Y'all cool with your pilots displaying this kind of cowardly rhetoric on their crew luggage when they're in uniform, about to board a plane?

Los Angeles crimes have seeped into the wealthiest of neighborhoods, rocking residents and being compared to dystopian movie franchise "The Purge." Residents have flocked to the city’s only gun store in response, arming themselves as a last-ditch effort for protection even though the city has a long track record of supporting liberal policies and gun control. "Although that is a part of my living, I get no pleasure whatsoever by having a 60-, 70-year-old woman walk into my store … who looks terrified, and say, ‘I have never liked guns. In fact, I've even hated guns. I would have never considered buying one.

Have you ever wondered what disgraced former deputy FBI directors do after trying to stage a coup and lying under oath? Apparently, they give talks about “protecting democracy” at top-rated institutions of higher learning. Indeed, this last Thursday the University of Chicago invited former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe to join a panel of partisans to discuss the Jan 6 “insurrection.” McCabe was fired as the deputy FBI director for leaking sensitive information about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation and then lying about it under oath.

This issue has always been at the heart of the internal data that was never turned over for review. For two years people have wanted to know the distinction and general health position of the people who were categorized as dying from COVID. What was their previous health status? For reasons that can only be reconciled by admitting it was purposeful to their objectives, the CDC never released any information showing the background health status of those who were categorized as dying from COVID. However, recently the CDC said they were going to assemble those various subsets of key data for the public.  CORRECTION*

This week marks two years since Iranian terror mastermind Major General Qasem Soleimani was torn apart by a Reaper drone missile in Baghdad, on the orders of Donald Trump. The Iranian regime has marked the anniversary with a flurry of antagonism throughout the region. On Monday, a coalition base outside Iraq’s main airport was attacked by two drones armed with missiles with the words “Soleimani’s revenge” on them. Both were safely shot down. That same day, two Israeli newspaper websites, the Jerusalem Post and Maariv, were hacked and made to display a picture of a missile being launched from Soleimani’s ring at Israel’s nuclear reactor.
