This has been a horrible year for bears around here. I just got a call from a neighbor telling me he had a HUGE grizzley in his yard going after his chickens. Fish and Game have been alerted and will probably have to kill this bear. Once they get used to human food they are too much of a danger to people and pets. I went out to get Lucifer in and saw some bear tracks and a pile of bear scat near my yard. SCARY !!! So for now NO dogs or cats outside without supervision, shotgun is locked and loaded I will be armed while out with the furbabies. Oh and I put my trash can in the woodshed. Just another day in the wilds of Alaska !!!

Wow, Scary stuff! Brings back memories of living on Bangor, if the bears on base were spotted near the housing the SP would let us know so we could be on the lookout until they got the bear trapped and relocated. Of course those were Black bears, not Grizzlies. Has it been a bad year for Salmon and their other natural food sources?
They did just shut down the Kenai river ( one of the worlds most famous salmon fishing rivers ) due to low numbers and we had a very very bad winter that was hard on our local moose. They have already had several bear maulings, one not far from me, the most reports of problem bears in years.
That explains a lot of what's going on then, it's late enough in the season that they're trying to put on as much weight as possible and need the calories provided by meat and fat. It's gonna be a rough year in grizzly country!
