Too Close For Comfort

Posted in Buggle Bite, Parenting at 7:24 pm by Momma

Yesterday morning Carly Jo and her Mommy came over for a play date with The Buggle. As they were walking up our front steps Carly’s Mommy says, “You know you have a big pile of bear poop at the bottom of your deck?!”

“Uh, huh?! Are you serious?”

Sure enough….

Bear Poopy

Notice how she managed to even get a little on the bottom stair? How thoughtful! And just to give all of you in blogland a little perspective on how close this poop is to my front door:

More Poop

After inspecting a little we noticed that there was a bag of garbage strung through my flower garden. At the bottom of my rhododendron bush there was a punctured Redi-Whip can. Hee hee, bet that gave her quite the scare! That’s prolly why she pooped an inch from my deck!

It’s no surprise to us that we have a bear around. We have known and seen evidence many times, and we do live on the edge of the mountain right of a creek… She really put it into perspective this time though…she nearly took a giant dump on my door mat! And in case you are wondering, “What kind of bear?” Well, it’s not Smokey, or Teddy or even a fuzzy Koala–I’m talking about GRIZZLY BEAR. You know the kind that ate Grizzly Man–alive! 😯

PS Check flickr for pictures of The Buggle and baby Kai on their first walk together! Sorry no bear poop.
