Today's Lesson: Stop and Smell the Bear Breath
Yesterday I drove past two animal control trucks. Parked on the bridge near my house, they had their flashing lights on, but were looking down at the river, kind of casually.
I actually drove past them twice -- going into town & coming home. And the second time a few people were gathered around, but I didn't stop.
Why? Was I pretty sure they had things under control? Did I resist giving whatever animal in distress one less human to worry about? Was I too heartsore with horse worries to add another creature?
My answer is yes, all of those, but want to know what I missed?
A happy young bear had climbed up a riverside apple tree to have a snack.
I wish I'd seen him before he ambled off on his own.
Next time I'll stop,

Id say the bear had things pretty much under control. Wild animals can often get themselves out of situations they get into. It would have been something to see though.
Turns out Animal Control officers were just watching the bear until the elementary school kids were out of school and on their ways home
wow.. so the bear was by a bunch of students... thats a good reason to watch a ton of fur with claws and teeth.Glad no one was hurt... including the bear
LOL! Maybe you can use that in one of your books! LOL! I read that some of author's best ideas come from real life situations! But I don't know how you would use THAT! LOL!
