I did not have to pay to see it . I simply entered the words " bear birdfeeder " into google/yahoo image search and those are some I came up with .

I thought you were still a subscriber like me? Are you sure. I can see it but it doesn't seem like anyone who isn't a subscriber can see it. That's how they get people to subscribe. They have a small percentage of forums that anyone who is registered can read but all the other forums they have they make you pay so you can turn off their ads.

Yes I am still a paid subscriber over there . Hmmm , that is not how or where I went to get the pic , it showed up on google or yahoo search . But one can go from image search and link back to original source which is what I must have done . So yes non-paying members would not have access . Had I not linked back then they would have .

Whatever , It shows a bear climbing a rock column (rather high) to get to some bird feeders .

You must have been logged on and didn't know it. That's how I found out the photo was over there. It made me log on.

I guess the sum of this story is that bears don't need any enhancement - they are fully capable of getting anything they want that you leave out!

If they want it, it doesn't even have to be "out" for them to get it. They can break open any door, any window and pretty much any container...

We used to have a cabin in the northwoods and it would get ransacked every spring. We were very diligent about not leaving ANY food in there. But other cabin owners weren't so diligent, so the bears learned that these cabins could be a good source of food.

I once wrote a paper in graduate school on the religion of the Siberian laplanders who see the bears as living in their own society parallel to humans. And that of course is not too far from the truth if you are a Siberian laplander. Bears are the main figures in lap religion - and by that I mean they are considered to have special spiritual qualities. Human boys are taught: be more like a bear - they are courageous and strong.
