Bear News





Here are some photographs illustrating what the bear did while visiting the cabin. I cleaned it up but not soon enough to prevent a mouse baby boom. The first night that I slept there I was nervous about being waken up by the bear but the mice kept me up instead. The next night Alice was with me and, after sleeping for a few hours, the bear woke us up as he/she tried to open the back door. We yelled to scare the bear away and Diego (the chihuahua) looked at us and went back to sleep.
We screwed the shutters shut and put a bed in front of the door. We'll see if it works.

The damage looks un-bearable (who-hoo). I know it is no laughing matter.

that's one crazy bear! did it bust in through the window?

Yes, it tore open the shutter and broke four panes of glass and slinked through. I like using "slink" to describe a bear movement.

I guess they're back. Sorry about that. Did you happen to swing by my place and survey for damage?

Your cabin is too far. Wayne checked all the cabins in your neighborhood. His was the only one hit.
