    unthinkingly, last night i moved a garbage bag out on to the deck, and forgot to "bin" it....so this morning it was strewn across the deck....

    maybe it was a dog or cat.... heck it could have been a raccoon, yeah! a raccoon, we were reassuring ourselves.... but the dogs knew better... their agitation and snuffling said bear but i sure didnt want to believe it.... the thought that a bear was on our deck is far from comforting

    so this evening, getting the hounds in from the pen.... holy [email protected]..... i didnt see it but they sure did..... hair on my neck and arms..... hair on their backs.... we looked like a mohawk convention.....

    spring is sprung so they are wide awake and hungry..... time to implement protocols!!!

    robins are so much easier !!!

    I love your sense of Humor....

    We stayed at a cabin in Tenn. before, and were warned NOT to put trash of any kind outside without putting it in the can. Also to clean the grill and close it. I had no idea Bear would come right up to the house like that. I didn't sleep a wink while there...

    did you see that documentary on polar bears in Alaska that showed some poor woman just screaming with fear after she had to shoot a bear that was breaking into her kitchen door? Poor thing - it was terrifying and she had kids with her - and it was a big big big bear. Wow - I think I'd move. I'm not tempted to mess around with bears.

    i have seen a documentary on the polar bears of hudson's bay and churchill, manitoba..... compared to other bear species, polar bears are more likely to consider humans as prey... and those bad boys are twice the size of a black bear!!!!

    black bears are not typically more than a nuisance, but this is early in the season and there will be cubs, which makes for more dangerous encounters......

    at any rate, the little shake up was a cheap enough reminder that lapses in vigilance just like that can lead to real big problems in a heartbeat..... lesson learned!!
