robomatic BS: Walking with the Bears! (48) RE: BS: Walking with the Bears! 24 Jun 21


Well, I've been writing about my Covid activity of dog-walking. We have a regular route which takes me up to a mile and a half from my house well inside Anchorage city limits. Yesterday a car drove by and the nice lady inside said that a moose calf's body had been found half buried behind the ice rink. The unsaid part of that tale is that a bear likely caught killed and buried the calf and will come back to it. The police were doing something about it. I'm not sure what they'll do, but at the least it will involve removing the calf's body. We saw a cow moose in the area, but by then we'd armed ourselves with bear spray. Same thing today.
I have seen a black bear walking down the sidewalk within walking distance of my house last year when the city was mostly shut down due to Covid. We are coming out of the inactive era with the Summer weather and extensive vaccination campaign. So the animals' vacation is ending. Too bad. I've been seeing bald eagles around, which is unusual so close to the municipality.
