Took it to the taxidermist today for a shoulder mount. 6 months to a year to do.

Wow, 4 is quite rare. Must be lots of food. I have seen 3 cubs lots of times. :)

Only bear I have seen this spring was crossing the road onto my woodlot as I was checking out the firmness of the road for hauling firewood.

Now have the bear mount back from the taxidermist after exactly 9 months. The taxidermist was displaying it in his studio for awhile and I still need to pick up the cleaned skull.  He said that his beetles used for cleaning the skull are working a little slow.

   A young woman killed by a black bear yesterday in Swan Hills , Alberta. She was a tree planter and they are pretty bear aware. Has been a death most years for several years. So much for the old story; they won’t bother you if you leave them alone.

One of the fella's had his gas jug chewed overnight out on the thinning block. Made a hole in a corner, but had tipped the jug so it never poured out. :D

I was sitting with my back to the window mucking on the computer when I heard a noise, turned around to see a young black pawing at the glass! I am thinking it was a yearling newly separated from the sow. The landlady called the conservation office and was told to wait to see if it left, if not call them back. I felt sorry for it, if habituated it was a goner.  The heat fires and heavy smoke are making life awfully tough for wildlife. Food sources are  limited.

I live in Nevada near Lake Tahoe.  We are down in a valley at 5,000 feet.  The Caldor and Tamarack Fires have displaced a lot of wildlife this year.  The drought makes it even worse.  We have black bears wandering around in neighborhoods surrounded by sagebrush and alfalfa fields.  Bears are everywhere.  They are desperate for food.  Try to work around them as best you can.

The fires have been very hard on wildlife. A number of bear and others have been treated for burns, especially burned feet.

Very Sad for all wildlife. It’s hard to believe with the technology and equipment that we can’t take care of situations before they get out of control. But politics, rules and regulations that have made situations that could have been prevented or minimized.
