In my travels within the past 3 days I have seen 2 bears!! That is a lot of sightings. Even the Trading Post had to shoo away a bear that was hanging around there the other day - Jake even let off a firecracker to scare it away. Joy on Axe Lake had a bear around her place last night for 45 minutes, trying to eat their bbq - they banged pots and pans, yelled and even threw stones at it and it still wouldn't leave. Ute called and said that someone or something had pushed over a rain gauge at the weather station. It had big rocks on its base to prevent that. She called me this morning to let me know because I am going to do the weather for her at 13:00 hrs. I went over to take some pictures and put the rocks back on the base - they were heavy!! So it looks like we have a hungry, not afraid of humans, big black bear in our neighbourhood so we will be on the lookout and the alert!!!
See Ya Bye
