Subject: RE: BS: Cat Trees Bear!
That's a good story LH, I enjoyed it.

There has been a bear sighted down my road where I walk my dog every morning so I've taken to carrying my Bowie knife because I would be very vulnerable if confronted, as the road passes through an uninhabited boggy area. This morning my dog stopped and sniffed the air and cocked his ears, then there was a loud sound of a branch snapping, whereupon I tensed and reached for my knife. Thankfully, to my relief, a turkey vulture flew out of the woods and over our heads, it must have been sitting on a dead branch which snapped as it took flight.
