Wonder were the mother was?
Going to the gun range to-day, driving my truck (for carrying ammo, targets, tools, electronic muffs, four h/guns, magazines, etc is to much on a m/c not to mention the overly steep gravel road) I was surprised to see this very young bear try to make it out & possibly(?) across on the four lane road of Hwy 97.
It was seemingly headed towards the lake, just across from the road, & I had stopped, threw on emergency lights & stopped those behind me in the slow lane.
The young 'un decided this was not the spot so went back to the hill. Reason for wondering where the mother was.
We have had bear before in this area along with a lot of deer.
Fact is the animal lovers are going to have a fit for on a certain part south of Penticton being on east side of Skaha Lake the home owners are allowed to kill a total of four Mule Deer by bow & arrow only starting after Sept 4th. The place in infested with them, cages hitting them, people being hurt. etc.
True this is a new one to me & I have lived here since '63.
