Last Thursday when I got back home after being in the hospital, I took a short walk with Kona. Coming back, as I approached the front porch, I was surprised to see some fresh footprints in the dusting of snow on the sidewalk. They looked like a person had walked barefoot through the snow, but then realized I was seeing bear prints.
I figured that the bears would have been hibernating, but I guess, not yet. Neighbors were also surprised to find some bear prints on their properties.
Surely by now, a week later, the bears must be snoozing in their dens by now, but who knows.
