Does a bear poop in the woods?
Yup. And a bear poops on my front walk, too. Just a reminder to all to watch your trash cans. And, in my case, to remind everyone on the house to watch what they put inside the trash - and what they leave to put out until the morning of trash day. We haven't seen a bear in the yard, just off Manitou Avenue in downtown M.S., since a week after we moved in two summers ago. But there's no doubt one is cruising the 'hood.
Bears are beefing up for winter, so they're eating just about anything they can get their paws on. It's up to us to help them out by NOT leaving food around. Cuz if they're caught breaking in, they'll be relocated or killed (if they just can't keep away from our easy pickins'), and we don't want that.
