Last Thursday morning I received a text from my son. It was short, simple and right to the point.
Mom, this is what came to breakfast this morning."
Like any mother, I love my son and his family. However, since I knew the seriousness of a bear sighting, my response was short, simple and to the point...report it...this is serious stuff.
Telling my son to never go outside without being observant and to never let my granddaughter out without checking the surroundings, I hoped that he would heed my words.
People around our state have been injured, startled and experienced recurring visits by the increasing numbers of black bears. In fact, a friend of a friend who lives in an elderly community is frequented by black bears. Their location? Right outside city limits!!
When my son called to report the sighting, DEP Wildlife Division asked if the bear was tagged. Remember to look for tags and get the number!
Later in the day, my son told me one my DIL's aunts asked how the girls reacted.
My son replied, "They were fine. I was the one acting like a girl."
Hmmmm...I wonder what he meant by that. I have to talk to that man!!
just seeing, saying, and sharing...
with you and those at
