RE: Mystery

Strange - the Memphis news has been awash for a couple of weeks now with
sightings of a brown bear in North Mississippi just a stone's throw from the
city - totally unheard of in this area.   He was seen and photographed (from
a distance) by more than a few people and reported to weigh in between
400-600 lbs.  Officials were finally able to tree him yesterday, tranquilize
him and  prepare to move him to a wildlife refuge.  They did a physical exam
to make sure that an encounter with a car last week did not injure him,
weighed him and carted the 167 lb. beast away.  North Ms. can rest easily

A bear was treed in the middle of Peekskill, about ten miles from here, a
few weeks ago.  There have been other sightings from time to time in the
area.  But this was in broad daylight, and I was working outside not far
away, though down the hill and on the other side of some trees from the
house so there was no direct sight line. Still can't understand it.

Around here that would have been a bear. One of my friends likes to tell
about sitting on his deck at the top of a long flight of stairs, reading the
paper. He looked up and saw a bear examining the hummingbird feeder next to
him, and froze, of course. Bear paid him no attention at all.

Do you have any in the neighborhood? I make plenty of noise when I go out
with my dog late at night; I wouldn't want to startle any bears, and there
are a number of them here. They have taken my suet feeder and my trashcan,
and regularly raid my friends' feeders.
