First Bear of the Season...

In March, South Tahoe Refuse changed garbage and recycling pick up times for all customers. This was awesome news because the new time, 7 AM, gave us a chance to get up and get our trash to the curb at a reasonable hour. Historically, the bears would 'hunt' in the middle of the night. However, today, this smart critter was out at 7 AM devouring the neighborhood trash. This series of photos is adorable even though we were practicing adverse conditioning with an air horn.

"Maybe if I hide behind this tree, no one will see me." While cute, it is alarming that he is out during the day. The Bear League will be notified.

Love the photos. Good job with the airhorn! Bear watching is more fun than bear scaring...but best to encourage him along. Sounds like a neighborhood garbage patrol is needed.
