Lions, Kamera and Bears...Oh My !
August 28, 2013
Good morning everyone! Kamera here...
Mom and Dad just went north in search of big moose today. Home alone again. Never the less, I ventured outside to snag a free copy of the Jackson Hole Daily from the local news stand and after reading the headlines, I was shocked to learn hunting bison on the National Elk Refuge is permitted. Poor animals...how difficult it must be to locate and shoot a bison. It is like shooting at a barn door from fifty yards away.
Anyway, I read that 399 (our infamous grizzly bear) and her three cubs were on the bison gut piles left by the hunters. Closest she's been to town ever. A boar grizzly was also spotted crossing the highway not more than a mile from Jackson's town limits. Every year it seems the grizz wander
closer to my little home here in town..
Not that I'm scared, I have my own camera set-up. I've never seen a bear except for on TV and sure would like to photograph one, especially one with three cubs of the year. I keep asking dad to take me along on their photo excursions. I think they shy from my company because I may come up with a wonderful photo of a bear or a moose or something, and win an international contest.
Dogs are people too ya know.
Upon further reading, it is reported a mountain lion was seen this week in the vicinity of south Jackson. Ever since I was a pup, I always had felinaphobia, the fear of cats. I think I will stay inside untill I hear anything new about the lion.
