Our friend the bear ( alive and well)

This is the BIG BIG fellow that's
been visiting us lately.

He's big and healthy and
very scary looking.

He doesn't seem to be much of a meat eater... he loves apples and plums

but we have kept the chickens locked up lately. They hate it. : )

I don't like the look of his nose. Has he been doing some blow lately?

I've been reading about drunk bears. They've been eating fermented apples and can't even walk straight...after their nap.

That is a huge bear!

Oh my gosh! And I thought the raccoons were bad where we once lived. I can only imagine if DH went into the garage and met this thing vs. the raccoon that he was eye to eye with. Be careful! He is adorable though.........some serious cuddling!

That is one magnificent creature. On the other hand, I'd be very nervous to find him in my back garden!
Do you know why he's coming round to visit you?
