I'm pretty sure justifiable homicide criteria trump the game laws. . .

Homicide only applies to people, I think you need to look up Bearicide.

Now every time I go over there and hear a noise in the brush, it's that knee jerk, doe in the headlight reaction from me. I swear my heart skips a beat. I know bears live in the woods. I never used to be afraid of bears before, well, a little. But ever since that really aggressive bear put his head and legs in the trailer at the beginning of this story, I am terrified of them. If I carried a gun, I think I'd turn it on myself first instead of the bear just to make the fear disappear. I can't move though, the park is perfect, the price is perfect. Seriously, aren't there any bear deterrents out there besides the pee around the trailer trick?

Margo Supplies Ltd - Bear Deterrent Menu

Bear Deterrents |

Carol, It's 313 miles each way. I could do it in about 5 hours if I take my Mini Cooper But I think you can take on this one yourself, with a little bear deterrent. Maybe a bottle of cougar urine or an airhorn on a can.

I have heard that food is the real issue 99% of the time. I would check out the area and see what the draw is. Maybe a dumpster or something is accessible to the big guy and he's just doing what he knows how to do. Chances are there have been other sightings in the area if he's been around for any length of time. If so, you can take this to the police and spca and I bet you would get some interest in moving him away if you are in a well-inhabited place.
Bears are big and scary. I wouldn't want to run into one in my Airstream, but you did and live to tell about it. I think that makes you very special, and obviously the bear does too, for him to follow you all the way to your new digs!

How is the appliance situation? Did you "pick a winner" in the RV appliance repairman lottery?
Whoops! off topic. Answer in the other thread.

Best to you,
Rich the Viking

Thanks for all the info on bear deterrents, what a supply Margo has! It would be my luck to let the dogs out for a pee at night and set off the trip wire, all the alarms blasting through the RV park...

Don't tell anyone but I actually made my own little contribution behind the trailer last night to see if that works. I smoothed over all the old bear tracks first so I could see if any new ones show up.

this story has to be published in some magazines. You are a fabulous writer. Has this been published anywhere?
