We had a Bear mangle our bird feeders around 9:00p.m. this last Saturday evening and during the earlier morning of the same day. We did get a glimpse of it when it came back a second time to see if the bird feeders were still out. The bird feeders had not been left out, though.
The bear was scared down towards the south when he heard us, but he (the bear) did not mess with NW Okie's portable vegetable greenhouse. A neighbor to the south said the bear came close to him and crossed the road and went under the North Bridge.
If you want to catch a quick few second of the bear and deer that dashed North and South on our road in the earlier morning hours between 4:27 a.m. and 5:27 a.m., do not blink while watching because you could miss them entirely.
NW Okie would not let us Pug dogs out alone this weekend in the evenings. She was afraid we would be skinned and/or the bear's next dessert. Anyway, this huge bear has been tagged twice already. And . . . you know what happens when they get tagged three times, don't you?
NW Okie's tomatoes ( early girls and better boys) are still growing and setting on, especially the "better boy" tomatoes.
I would just like to remind people who come to the mountains to keep their garbage secured away from wildlife and do NOT feed the wildlife! Only you can prevent our wildlife from bad habits and out of trouble! Thanks for helping keeping our wildlife safe from our bad habits! ~NW Okie 2011-06-21 14:33:00
