    When I lived back east the town warned residents not to put out bird feeders as the bears would eat the seed. Nuisance bears were marked with a yellow ear tag. A famous wild bear named Bearzilla was said to have broken out of the bear trap set for him and left a big pile of scat next to the driver’s side of the police cruiser.

    We have black bears in the woods behind our house. Fortunately, they are not as aggressive as grizzly bears. One summer, a bear came into our yard and smashed flat one of our bird feeders, Left a big pile of scat, too. Fortunately, that has been our only incidence.

        Exciting is right. When you live in the woods, you never know what you might encounter. However, for the most part wild animals are very wary when it comes to humans, and rightly so. This means we only get glimpses from time to time, of certain animals.

        I was watching a programme last week about the 4 million buffalo and millions of pronghorn antelope that roamed the Canadian prairies. Then Europeans arrived and decided beavers would look better as hats.

        Oh, my! But the beavers, at least, are making a comeback. There are buffalo in the United States. Not so sure about the pronghorn antelope.

    In Arnold, when I am on my way home from work I occasionally see the odd one. My son lived at Bestwoid for a while outside his house were chestnut trees, Squirrels flourished there his neighbour used to feed them.
