The black bears arrived early this year usually they come in time for the black berries (August) and a big surprise a baby bear. This is the second time we have seen baby bears in twelve years what a treat.
How do we keep the bears out of our yard?
* Never leave dog food, bird food etc. out for them
* Own a couple of big dogs
* Never leave garbage cans outside
How do we keep our donkeys and horse safe?
Planning comes first and then the equine can come home! We installed horse wire on the paddock and hot wire on the bottom and top to prevent any predator from coming into the paddock. We never let them out to graze in the green and wooded paddock without being home to watch and ensure no predators are around.
The way we look at it the bears lived here long before we moved in, they have the right to run on the back five acres and be bears. :)
What do you think about wildlife and bears?
GOD bless you and your family two and four-legged!
