    Bears

    Here's something from the local paper:

    I don't get out into the back-country anymore.

    I learnt that when a polar bear lowers its head it means that it is about to attack.

    This aint about bears, but I didn't know where to stick this article:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/30/wo...tion.html?_r=0

    I saw some of these critters in the East Berlin zoo (Tierpark) back in 1964, while on a Sunday tour. We GIs were in uniform (mandatory), along with Russian soldiers in uniform around the park.

    I did see a pair of black bears a couple weeks back. Fortunately, in the countryside, not a pie shop.

    We have a lot of black bears here in Virginia. They love to raid bird feeders. There was one raiding bird feeders in our little neighborhood a couple of weeks ago, but fortunately he or she passed mine by.

    The place I grew up in is called Bear Creek. You guessed it, we saw bears on a regular basis. It is located on top of a mountain, and the woods were just beyond our backyard. When I was 4 years old before our back porch was closed in, a bear came and was looking in our dining room window. I can remember another time a bear cub went up a tree to escape a forest fire.
