    +”They are always the topic of conversation,” said Cheri Juneau, who works at Pierre’s bar and café in Dupuyer. “I just had a guy in here today with a bear story. I would say Dupuyer is one of the No. 1 places for grizzly bears. It is an awesome thing. People get all excited+

    Nice to see someone has the “welcome” mat out!

    As the majority of the eastern plains are private land, the next thing I expect to hear is conflict. Hope the bears can stay out of troible.

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
