So - rumor has it that there lives a bear behind our farm......a real live, big old black bear. By the neighbor's calculations -- a 500-600 pound bear!! That's a big bear.
With the mild winter, the bear has been awake & rooting about. With the lack of snow, it has also been crossing the road to drink from the creek across the way. Rodney has seen it three times in December.
So, I think, what do I do if my path should cross with a big old bear. Even though the facts note that black bear generally are people shy ---- the facts also state that one should climb a tree - a tall tree. It also states to not try to out run a bear -- as they are faster than they appear.
So, if anyone should happen by the farm and see a Kari on the roof of the barn -- do not question how I got there -- just know why I got there!
