I got woken up to the dogs going nuts last night around 1am. It wasn't the half-hearted "'possum on the patio" bark, but rather the frantic "danger! danger! death!" bark.

Husband & I jumped out of bed (w/ nary a stitch of clothing on between us) and went to the back door were the dogs were both in full guard mode. Talk about mean and angry - the girls were ready to kick some serious arse!

Flicked on the patio light and were face to snout with a full grown black bear. Surprise! The back patio door is a full light french door. Yep, just a bit 'o glass between naked us and our big ursine friend. That'll get your heart racing. We all stood there staring at each other for a couple seconds before he ambled away. Too bad I didn't grab my camera.

I figured he was in the backyard after oranges; but daylight proved me wrong. Mr. Bear had plucked the window mounted bird feeders and emptied them without spilling a bit. Tore down and emptied the hanging feeder in the yard too.

Guess I'll be bringing in my feeders at night.

Bird Feeders

My sister& her husband had her bird feeder on her kitchen widow sill;
but that was in big city.

I don't eat bear and the bear don't eat me. Told to me by a Blackfoot Brother in the 60's up near Chief Mountain Ranger Station, Mt.

-----------------

Just what the the H do you think the bear thought went he seen the two of you standing there buck naked. Ever figured why he "ambled away" He's no doubt still shaking in his tracks. Send us pics and we will on vote as to if you could have caused that poor critter to have a heart attack.

If I was checking out a ruckus in the middle of the night, I don't think I'd do it with little Tom and the twins swinging in the breeze. Then again, whoever it was would probably die laughing, saving me a bullet.

Are you sure it wasn't a forum member? I hear a few dress up as bears on occasion.
