Ramona doesn't like



the bear poop in the yard.

No kidding, I have cleaned up maybe thirty pounds of bear poop the last few days.

They are coming over the fence in the dead of night and eating my apples. I don't know why I didn't notice it until most of the Red Delicious were turned into bear poop. Then I got out the ladder and picked all the rest I could reach. But the bears are still coming though I don't know how they are getting out on the thin branches for the remaining apples.

They have been getting over the fence without doing much damage. I guess they're somewhat considerate, for bears. They arrive when we're all sound asleep, shimmey up one side of a tree until they are above the fence, swivel around and shimmey down the other side. But I do a complete Border Patrol before letting the kits out.

Ramona says bear poop is yucky.

I agree.

Yes, I think bear poop would be icky too. Our neighbors said once they saw a Momma bear make a baby (lighter) go up on a fence line to get something and then bring it back. Bears can be very cooperative together!

Bears? OMG! I am glad we don't have bears in the garden here! (that would cause a bit of a sensation in London). Keep them far away from the Tigers!

I have never seen a bear or it's poop. You must be very brave!
