On Sunday we were about to pull out of our driveway onto the road, when we noticed that the neighborhood bear was walking across the road and just about to enter the woods on our side. Seeing the bear is always be a worrying situation, especially this time of year. It is not fear of the bear itself that is worrying so much as what the hungry beast might do to our fruit trees.
Usually the bear does its marauding at night, so we continued on down the road to take our dog on a walk. As soon as I got back home, I picked up a bucket and made a beeline to our plum and apple trees ready to pick all of the fruit so that would not be a temptation to the bear, because this year our trees are really loaded.
