The Bull Died and the Bears Are Out
When I drive into town about half way there has always been a lone bison bull. A friend said that bull was not part of any herd and had been out there alone for as long as she could remember. Well, today I saw a dead bison bull off the highway, and I think it was that one. He was getting old.
And as for the bears being out. I have never seen so many driving into town. I kind of wish I had my camera with me. The bears were feeding on the green shoots that are coming up on the side of the road. In the past when I have seen bears up here they see your car coming and they tend to take off into the bush. Well, except for the momma bear with her 3 cubs I saw at the dump when I getting rid of some construction debris. I was there first, throwing stuff out of my car, bang, bang, bang, and she came out of the bush heading for the lagoon being followed by her 3 cubs not more then about 50 meters from me. And then she turned to go back into the bush and I kind of thought it would be better to be in my vehicle. I also thought it would be better to be in it with the sun roof closed. Those sunroofs do not close all that fast when you want them closed.
I bet you thought that title was a metaphor.
