NEAR Results?

Hello:

I have am using two point data sets, one representing animal locations (AL) and one representing a landscape feature (LF).  I used the NEAR function to try to get the distance to the nearest LF from each of the AL’s.  It ran with no problems, quite fast actually (maybe a little to fast to believe) but the distance values (as shown below) don’t make any sense…projections are the same, thought maybe the distance values could be fractions of a kilometer but even then they don’t make sense.  So I am probably just missing something simple but would certainly appreciate any insight.  Thanks much
