Ya maybee know from readin my diary lately that we beened havin trubl with bears round here, speshly grizzly bears. In just a few days a mama grizzly called a sow (yeah, just like piggies) killed or injured 70 sheeps on two diffrunt ranches and a Hutterite colony. She killed some sheeps, injured more, and a bunch got skared and runned each nuther over and died. It made mama so sad cuz the sheeps musta beened so skared, and the mama bear onliest eatened on two of the sheeps. The nuther ones died for nuthin; they were not even her dinner. The mama bear has a tiny little girl cub who onliest weighs 32 pounds, and that is pretty small.
Anyway, they catched both bears and had a meetin to decide what to do with the mama bear. They decidered to relocate her far, far away from where any sheeps live, but if she does anymore bad stuff, she will be outta chances. If that happens, they will take the baby bear and send her to an animal rehab center, but she will never get to live in the wild again. Mama told me and the Peekster the baby bear will be safe, but she was never meant to live in a cage in a zoo.
The skariest part is mama knows just where they trapped the mama bear and cub, and it is NOT up in the mountains. It is right out on the prairie near Collins, Montana, where mama and daddy go each spring to an antique show. Collins used ta be a real town, but now there is only an old deserted general store, the Collins Community Center, a coupla houses, and the old Collins school. Mama and daddy love the school, and they thought it would make a real cool house but not with grizzly bears in the back yard...
We have a black bear roaming the woods behind our house. While black bears aren't as scary as grizzlies, this is not supposed to happen in Boston.
Whoa Gunnie - mom had heard of that grizzly bear. Scary! I'm glad they're deciding to relocate the bear. You and Peekie stay safe, ok!
I've never seen a real bear before. I hope that Mama bear stays out of trouble so she can continue to live in the wild.
That is scary & really sad on so many levels. I hope she stays away so they can be free.
Very scary stuff. Hoping the relocation works and the Mama bear doesn't get in any more trouble.
All we got is deer and groundhogs in our outback, thank goodness. We have Black Bears in the mountains and hope they stay there. We like our deer population and don't want them to get hurt. Makes me glad I live inside. BBurrrr bear go away, time to move to the mountains.
This is sad for the sheep and the bears and very skeeery for hooomans and kitties. Stay safe hope that bear is not getting too close to you and your family.
Bears so they aren't like teddy bears then???? Why do they make them look so cute? They sound very mean.
Hey, Sam. I do not think real bears look much like teddy bears. They have HUGE teefs and klaws, and they are not fraid of nuthin cuz they are at the top of the food chain. Black bears or grizzly bears; they wanna do what they wanna do, and they can be mean if they do not get what they want. They eat nuther animals, plants, bugs, mostly anything.
So...if ya hear russ-lin in the bushies, run, run RUN like heck!
