Rudy's Visitors

With my continued inability to sleep through the night (I seem to awaken at 3:00 a.m. no matter how much sleep I have had up to then), I checked my email and found these photos that a college chum, Rudy, now-retired and living in West Virginia, took of some wee-hour visitors he had this morning.
Rudy writes:

OK, this is fucking war. It was 2AM when the bells I had attached to a string and ran into our bedroom started ringing. Poor Kathleen busted her knee getting out of bed. I don't know if you can see, but there is wreckage of my poles and they are just starting to feed on the bird seed from the busted feeders. Looks like another trip to Home Depot and I gotta get my neighbor up here tomorrow sharp with his electric fence transformer. No more Mr. Nice Guy.



Addendum: for those who can’t tell from the photographs, Rudy’s visitors were a family of bears.

  1. What are they? I have to say I don't blame him for planning a war. When they create damage I would feel the same way.

  2. Is that a small bear? I can't really tell. Get you some pepper spray.

  3. Those bears in Appalachia are spoiled brats. They’re used to taking whatever humans leave unguarded.

  5. I’d rather deal with visits from bears than an infestation of Arizona desert rattle snakes!

  6. Hi Nick ~~ These are totally scary and
    I don't blame your friend for saying
    "This is war, no more Mr. Nice Guy."

    Thanks for your visit and I am glad you liked the jokes. I liked yours in the previous post.
    Take Care Nick. Merle.

  8. Long back in my village, when my parents were kids, tigers used to visit at night to carry off the cattle. No such experiences of wilderness for us, who grew up in the concrete world.
