Hello everyone.
I know their not pets, but I couldn't figure out the best forum to post these.

Today I took some pictures of the local bear population at work.

Just a warning - Do not get close to bears.
I was in a a truck while taking these pictures and had my partner keeping an eye on the bears I wasnt focusing on.

We counted 15 black bears in the dump this morning, who were accompanied by 4 Bald eagles, about a dozen Turkey Vultures and about 100 Ravens.
Here are a few of the pics I took.

Have a look at these guys:

The bear on the right sat in something

Sitting like a gentleman

couple circus bears

Last years cub

These guys were in the trailer at first, then as I drove up to them they all came out...and then they started to fight.

Wouldnt want to be on the end of that guys bite

Then they noticed me and started coming over

This guy is pretty laid back

Getting comfortable

Sticking his tongue out at me

Smiling at his buddies

Posing...I guess?

Almost forgot about this little gem.
4 ears and a pig nose...and about 700 lbs

That's a Bear Convention. Wow, I am impressed. What beautiful pictures. You have caught this scene so well.

The "bear" necessities of life.

In Britain around the time of King Henry V111 and Elizabeth 1 Gentry kept bears up until shortly before the Victorian age. They imported them. That is where the "bear pits" come from. It was an horrendous blood sport called bear baiting.


Attempts to end the entertainment were first made in England by the Puritans, with little effect. The deaths of a number of spectators, when a stand collapsed at the Paris Gardens on 12 January 1583, was viewed by early Puritans as a sign of God's anger, though not primarily because of the cruelty but because the bear-baiting was taking place on a Sunday.[7] One bear named Sackerson was written into in a Shakespearean comedy The Merry Wives of Windsor.[8] By the late 17th century "the conscience of cultivated people seems to have been touched",[6] but it was not until 1835 that baiting was prohibited by Parliament by the Cruelty to Animals Act 1835. The ban was soon extended across the Empire.

People say the world is getting worse and talk about the so called good old days, but i don't think so. In the West we are getting less and less cruel, more and more enlightened. I hope it is a trend that continues.

One of the little guys was up against my truck door.

Have you seen the documentary "Grizzly Man" ?

I actually made a thread a long time ago, it's an amazing watch.

Here if you ever have time and decide to watch it.

Who doesn't like a well turned leg? ROFL!!!
Seriously it's not her fault she's short waisted and muffin-topping over that culvert, ya gotta works with what you got, heheheheh.

As for the one sticking his tongue out then smiling at his buddy?
"Told you they never get out of the truck!!"

Great Pics, thanks for thinking of us!
Altho now I can't get the song "baby got back" out of my head....

I posted this guy a while back.
He was rescued by one of our truck drivers.

About 10 ravens were pecking at him and swarming him.
The truck driver pulled over and picked the owl up with his jacket.
He got the owl in his truck and the owl just sat on his seat.

The owl stayed on site for almost 2 weeks while we got a rescue center to come get him.
Some how the owl just knew no one was going to hurt him. And he was like a buddy to the guys.
He would just chill out on their shoulders or on their chairs.
It was amazing seeing this.

I could post an entire thread with pics from the owl, but heres one for now.

Ya that was really good.
The old manager of this mine site, took 3 cubs in that were abandoned by their mother.
He would allow them in his room at the mine site.
Feed them, let them sleep on the floor.
He truly believed they were his pets.

They got bigger and eventually he came to his senses and set them free.
But what a scene that was!

How cool.

Jesus man, who needs zoos when we could just take a day tour with you instead?

Where do you live that you have this kind of ample wildlife, anyway? What little I can see of the surrounding vegetation in the pics suggests Canada or Alaska to me.

Here's a short drone video of 8 bears hanging out at the dump last summer
Look at how big a few of them are!

I live in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.

The pictures posted are from the mine I work at which is an hour and a half north of Thunder Bay.

On the drive up Monday morning there was a cougar just sitting on the side of the road.
I said to my buddy, that's odd he's just sitting there. Before I could get the full sentence out, we passed by 2 rabbits on the other side of the road.
That cougar must had been hunting them down until we interrupted his kill. Lol.

Great pictures OP! Nothing political at all, unless some tree hugger starts going on about the white man encroaching on bear territory. I like to think of it as "Coexist " together

Oops, I read that wrong. I thought it said 15 bears took a dump.

I lived in Kenora back in the 60's and same thing. Bears everywhere. No incidents. They just came for the garbage.
