The Bears are emerging from their dens,walking about,scratching their butts and looking for their first cup of joe!
Ok,so maybe not walking about or searching for a cup of joe but defiantly scratching their butts!
I went out searching for some and was surprised to actually find one, as it was high tide and they prefer low tide. At Low tide they can overturn the rocks and get all the baby crabs! They eat hundreds a day! I think the reason why our Coastal bears all have such shiny coats is because of this daily crab diet!
So, I found this adult female in Dawley pass near the south end of Fortune channel. She doesn’t know me,so I kept my distance. It’s when the ears flatten that you know a bear is getting anxious.
I did see a second bear but it was too far away and I couldn’t get closer.
