Have you spotted a bear recently in Douglas County?
I'm serious. I'm a face book fan and read one friend's report about finding bear scat numerous times the past couple of weeks. Apparently her husband has heard a bear making ghastly bear sounds, the horses are too afraid to come out of the barn, and the family dog has returned home smelling to high heaven and scared.
I'm hearing reports of the bear scat sightings north of Baldwin City and surrounding a several mile area running east and west of a friend's farm. My friend reports her berries are still intact.
So reports of cougars and bobcats may be taking a back seat to bear sightings.
I didn't realize this was bear country, did you?
What's the strangest animal you've witnessed in your own back yard?
