7' and Nervous

While I was away for a few days, the neighborhood grizzly bear has continued to enjoy the neighborhood.  It's been dining on Mountain Ash berries wherever one occurs along the highway or on the edge of a field.  They are not a great source of food, but with fish in short supply it's about as good as they can get.  I've seen the guy that did this damage and he's big.  Big enough that both the dog and I watch each others back.  At night the dog stays within dash distance of the house and during the day, she lays and watches and has warned me twice when the bear walked out 75 metre away in the field.  It's a good relationship.

The ash tree in this photo had no lower branches to climb so the bear stood up and tried to chew through a 4" trunk at 7' off the ground.  He wasn't successful last night, but I'm sure persistence will pay off for him and I will have some more firewood when it's all done. Grizzly
