bearly awake

While out near Juskatla in the same patch of woods where the aerial bear den is, I found rather definitive evidence that the bears have now awoken.

While out walking I also found plenty of bear turds. This time of year they look like a whole lotta round deer droppings smushed together to form a thick log. I imagine the similarity is due to bears awaking to fresh spring shoots as their primary food source – pretty much the same food as the deers eat. There is also the occasional pile of fur and bones suggesting that the bears get tired enough of salad to go eat deer.
