In the middle of one night, last summer…I heard a noise, like a scratch on the window downstairs.
Big Pete thinks I have bionic hearing like Jamie Sommers. (If you grew up in the 70’s you watched the Bionic Woman and The Six Million Dollar Man every week )
Jamie would put her hair behind her ear and then she would listen…….De,de,de,de,de,de,de,de,de (it made that sound too!!)
So, ……I go downstairs thinking something is fishy. I notice the motion sensor light is on and my hanging plant is swaying in the window outside . I look to the tree outside and notice no breeze. Either someone is trying to break into my house or…..I open the back door and look out and see a BLACK BEAR standing up at my fence eating out of my bird feeder!! “What the……I start clapping my hands loudly and running outside, chasing the bear. I am yelling to Big Pete who manages to look out the window as the bear is hopping the fence. He sits on top of my fence and stares at me for a few seconds before deciding to leave.
I think I heard him say ” Hey Lady could you leave me a nice PIC-A-NIC basket next time!”
This is a sign we see when we drive to Whistler. When you live in BC you live in bear country. I learned last summer that you do not leave bird feeders up or else you are feeding the bears.
You can however, feed your favorite POOCH!!
