Somebody has seen a bear down at Twin Beaches, GROWLS says. So, hmmm. If you’re heading down to Taylor Bay, Pilot Bay, or anywhere near there, you might want to be a little more alert than you might otherwise be.
And of course that bear could be anywhere on Gabriola by now, or might have already pushed off to head for another island.
If anything on your property might seem like a food source to a bear (meat, fish, birdseed, fruit, garbage) then you might want to make some changes. I’ve seen what two bears did with a bottle of fish-fertilizer intended for the garden, and it was pretty extreme.
If you hear a bell jingling in the woods today, it’ll be me with bear bells on my pack.
