I reported earlier that we had a bear in our neighborhood. This young cinnamon phase bear was raiding my neighbor’s chicken coup. The bear would come into his pen, grab a bird, and then come over and eat it under the cedar tree in my front yard. My neighbor would add some more lumber to the outside of the coup to try to make it more secure, but the bear just kept coming back. He called the WDFW and Eric Boyd from enforcement came out and last Saturday placed a trap near the coup. On Sunday, my other neighbor called to warn us that the bear was just outside our house. Sure enough, we looked out the window and it was right there and headed for the coup. I grabbed my camera, and we watched the bear attempt to get inside, even climbing almost onto the roof. It couldn’t get in and eventually walked across the street and down the road. We’re all hoping the bear will take the bait and trip the trap and can be removed. We don’t want it killed. Please take precautions to you don’t attract a bear to your home and cause it to be eliminated.
