Will people never give up? Do not feed the bears!

Our camping property is a forest conservation area, by our choice. 

one year, we awoke to what sounded like short, intermittent  bursts of hail, first night back, in months.

It wasn’t. There was a squirrel nest in a tree above us. We were "invading " their space.  As soon as they figured out we were harmless,  the barrage of nuts quit.

The creatures were all here first. We see the bears often, usually in the distance,  but they want nothing to do with us. A raised voice, or a bark from my 9 pound dog sends them packing. 

Keep a clean campsite. Our permanent neighbors do same. Put food sources out of sight and scent.  

At public campgrounds,  make sure everything attractive is packed away, and all doors and windows are closed and  locked. 

You have no idea of previous occupants. Bear, and other creatures, can learn that  that campsites are an easy "foodsource". None of us want that. They become at risk, if they become accustomed to human food and contact. They'll eventually "invade" a human space,,and become subject to relocation or  demise. 

Please do your best to let wild life continue to he wild,,and respect their space. We just share it with them, at their pleasure.

These "Fluffy Cows" stopped traffic for an hour headed to West Yellowstone on our motorcycle trip a couple summers ago...

Tourons

I made the mistake of following Tourons of Yellowstone recently and now my Instagram feed is full of these very special people. It's a given that there are people who don't use good sense but the number of people blatantly disregarding the signage and guidelines is a little shocking.

I saw this on Facebook this morning. This stickie camper severely damaged by a bear at Gorges sp, about 20 miles from Brevard, several days ago.

Campground will be closed for two weeks.
