    I saw a black bear within 1/4 mile of Cascade at noon today. They are really struggling this year.

    Has anyone considered supplementa feeding to keep em out of trouble?

  3. They are so scattered. They aren’t in herds, so if this was a good idea, I don’t think practical; and of course, a fed bear remembers where it got good food and will come back.

    I am doing a research project about bears sighted in Idaho and I am having a hard time finding information related to this. Can you help point me into the right direction?

    Thanks.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
