Look what's in my yard today...

Yeah, it's a bear. We've had a few bears in the neighborhood...they know when it's garbage day! We've even called the Sheriff's office but they can't do anything because it's the bears' habitat. And they are so used to scrounging for food from the garbage cans that they couldn't go back into the wild. So until they harm a person or animal we've got these "pets" walking around.

I don't live in a rural area, mind you. I live on a cul-de-sac that is bumped up against other neighborhoods. There is a state park nearby, but these bears would have had to walk quite a few miles with traffic to get here!

Oy Vey!!


  1. oh BOY, that's a little on the un nerving side! It's like the coyotes we have around here....don't let the dog out at night...

  2. wow! we just have regular critters here!
