    Here is my favorite bear video. It's a tv commercial.

    I got to ride an elephant at a circus once, years ago. That was so much fun. (I also got to ride a camel at the Memphis Zoo once.)

    I was digging in a box of books I hadn't looked at in years today, and found a large size paperback "Ice Age Mammals of North America; A Guide to the Big, the Hairy, and the Bizarre", 2002. It might be worth checking out if you are interested in such prehistoric beasts of old.

    This is from a little over three months ago (but I didn't notice it back then). It's a notification from the county about bear sightings.

    Bears sighted in Spotsy

    No photos, unfortunately.

    Here's an article from back on June 26th that includes a couple of nice photos. It's from Stafford County, just to our north.

    Bear cubs lock themselves in a Tennessee van, then honk until a human let them out

    The van's driver says he heard honking for 20 minutes before he finally went to investigate

    We had encounter with Black bear in Killarney this summer during hike, pretty chill lads, he saw us and walked away. If there were cubs nearby, would have been a different case. I was surprised to know folks in Northern Ontario hunt and eat them. Very fatty meat.

    Well, we have alot of problems with black bears coming into our town

    there used to be a spring bear hunt up here for decades to try to cull the numbers and prevent daily human/bear confrontaions in town but toronto types thought that was wicked and evil and cried so we dont do it anymore
    ...there is a black bear hunting season you need tags for, but while I have many pals that are quite dedicated hunters, I've never heard of one going after bear, and quite frankly, I think it is frowned upon now-not many trophy hunters up here, we are taught to use what you kill
    ...big lineups to get moose tags via lottery though, and deer are of course super popular and in large numbers

    I've never had bear meat myself, I dislike even a hint of 'wild' taste but again, I might have heard of a native pal maybe making some jerky out of bear meat, but honestly, thats more for the subsistence hunters...which we have no quarrel with them hunting them as all parts are used
    ...anyway, Ive never heard of a buddy cooking or eating bear so I doubt its well liked
