From Pam Herrenkohl's facebook today: (she lives on BQHill by Gas Canyon)
Driving home tonight I spot a family of FOUR bears having a buffet in the neighbor's garbage can. The two babies scurried up a tree when I shined my headlights on them. Came home, got Chris and his spotlight and went back there. They had moved on to the next neighbors garbage can. Got a great look at the cubs. Soo adorable! What baffles me is why every week some of our neighbors continue to put their garbage cans out the night before garbage day. Hello people - we live in bear country! They must enjoy picking up the mess in the mornng. Then Chris shows me my soft sided ice chest they had taken gold mining and accidently left outside. The bears ripped it to shreds last night. Now I know why Jubilee was barking and jumping up at by bedroom window in the middle of the night. We had company! Gotta love life in the mountains.
