Our black bear is back. The last time he was hear was about this time last year, when he came through to eat all the blackberries in the yard. It looks like this might become an annual trek as he’s been back the last few days following the elk and the berries. Noticing the bear and getting the cats back in the house without chasing them down and causing a huge problem has been interesting. It seems that the cat notices the bear smell, but freezes up without the encouragement to get back inside. It’s a good thing these guys don’t go outside the fence, they’re just not suited to life outside.Crossposted from Journey to the Center, comment here or there with OpenID.
