Black Bear visit

Coming home this afternoon a black bear was in my driveway.  I honked the horn and the bear ran up the driveway, and into the bushes. They have all the food they need, berries and fruit of all kind are now in season. The Pink Salmon is also running, but the rivers are very low. My dogs did not wake up.

I have known this bear for 5 years now, sorry to see them go.

A friend of mine was sleeping in his mobile when he woke up as one of the cubs were half way into his camper. They both got scared, and the young bear ran away. My friend says he can still smell the breath ! of the cub.IMG_0026

Here is the two years old eating one of my nice roosters. Started as a game, just running after the chickens.

Coast Reporter

My next door neighbour had a visit two days ago that ripped a storage shed apart, and destroyed a nice well built greenhouse. At my place they try to get to the Humming Bird feeders, but I hang them high, but they are very curious and climb over the wood stack, turn over anything, and leaves a mess ! My old dogs does not even wake up when they are on the front deck. Berries are late this year, but it looks like it will be a  good crop. In the meantime, the bears are not really a big problem, just have to learn to live with them in their territory.
