Bears are Everywhere!
The lady behind our house told us a bear had climbed over our fence and was in our yard the other night. No worries cause our gardens are pitiful. I looked all over and didn't see any damage. He didn't even eat the blueberries that are left on the bush or eat the grapes that aren't ripe. Maybe he's waiting for them to get ripe. I'll be a little more cautious sitting outside at night.
Today we went to my nephews wedding. They got married at a local park. It was a perfect day for a wedding outside. It was 1pm in the afternoon. They had placed the front near the edge of the park. As the minister was saying his stuff you could see this little bear creeping up behind them. He was about 20 ft from the bride and groom. People were laughing and taking pictures. Finally the bride and groom figured out something was up and noticed the bear. A man got up and chased the bear away.
We are pretty used to bears here. Most people aren't afraid of them and not one woman screamed when the bear was there. Once the bear was gone the wedding continued on like he'd never been there. From what I've heard this bear goes to all the weddings and like to get into people's pictures. I only hope people don't feed him. That will make for a bad bear who will get too close to people and end up getting himself shot. That's not what we want for our wildlife. We want to coexist with them in peace. If they want to enjoy a wedding that's fine as long as they don't get too close or disrupt things.
I always think it's a good omen when wild animals come to human events or show themselves to us. It makes me feel like we can all live on the earth together without harming each other.
