The Visitor....

We woke up the other morning to
find we had an
unexpected visitor in Zone 3.

Beth said from what it
looked like it was a bear.

Like this....


What?
Oh, okay then....
Beth said not that kind of bear....

Just a black bear -- like this....


He must of been hungry because he
kinda made a mess
and now I have to go and clean it up.


Beth said if she would have known she would
have put a plate of food out for him.

We never know what is going to
come out of the Magic Forest....

Later -- Remington --
he kinda looks like me....
-- out!

Madi and Mom said...

Oh my stars Rem...what a mess you have we are so sorry he tore up all your pretty feeding stations. After seeing this Mom is no longer mad at our squirrels. If she saw evidence that a bear had been in our yard she'd be running for the hills. The wildest thing we have had in the yard is a fox and once a deer ran through the front yard.

Thank goodness all of the residents in Zone 3 are safe.
Hugs Madi

Wow! That is a mighty big visitor you had Remington! I had no idea that you get bears in Zone 3!

Sandra said...

he does look like you. its a good thing beth did not put out food, it is dangerous to feed bears and in FL it is against the law to feed them or alligators. it makes them come to the areas where humans live and then they end up in trouble. he sure did make a mess, and he does look like you but not nearly as handsome

We have birds visiting, but never a bear.... I'm not sure I'd like to meet one of those face-to-face. You are very brave -- of course you are about a ga-zillion times bigger than me. So maybe he doesn't look so bad to you.

pawhugs, Max

Sorry, da Puddles don't do bears. You is on your own dis time. I would just be an appetizer.

I has to say dat is kinda neat dat you is so close to nature and wild furries. But I soooooo would not want to haves to clean his mess up, where are his manners?

Frankie Furter said...

OH NO... look at the mess he made. You and Ozabella are very much lucky that you were INSIDE where it was safe!!
Sarge gets bears in his yard butt...SO FAR .. they have never done anything butt POOP. I found some of it once. It was quite thrilling.

JackDaddy said...

Well, it looks like a cat did it to me! :)

Kathy said...

Love your hat!
Wow, looks like your visitor got up grumpy and hungry from his winter's nap! What a mess!

But I don't think you want Beth feeding him, he'll never go away!

No Jack, I don't think even Ozzie did that!

Yeah, what's that cat doing there? Is he cleaning up the leftovers?

We don't think we want any bears in our yard.

PS Remington, I have a very soft spot for Newfies, sweet gentle giants! And I didn't see a single one in Newfoundland! BOL

Thanks for reading my blog, but I've been so busy I haven't updated it in a while! But I'm still beading! :)

H Ski said...

He did make a mess!! I can't believe there was a bear in your yard.

Cher' Shots said...

I had to laugh when I saw that first bear pic ~ I knew you were just yanking my chain!! I have seen a grizz up close and personal like - They are HUGES! YIKES! So glad you are such a help for Beth.
'love & hugs from afar'
p.s. sorry I missed your Mothers Day post - your Mom is a beauty.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Yikes! That bear made quite the mess! You need to teach him some manners, Remington!

Love ya lots

Schnauzer Days said...

Wow Remmington, we've never seen a bear and never likely to, hard to imagine one wandering around the house, we get mad enough at next doors cat! You look like a big cuddly bear our human says, Dex & Lou xxx

Winnie said...

That's scarey!!!

Do you think it would help if I came along and did my bouncer duties on the door?

Ginny said...

Oh my gosh, he wrecked the place!!! Did Beth actually see him, or did he come in the night? Magic woods...that's a little bit TOO much magic for me!!! We have bears around here that get into people's garages, and one broke into the kitchen. We live at the foot of Bear Mountain, no joke!

Junior and Orion said...

Holy smokes!!!!!!!! You all better stay inside away from such visitors!!!!! That bear would love some extra dinner!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Oh no! What a mess!! The bear sure was hungry! We have some wander down from the mountains around here some of the time! Lots of love, Holly & Mom

Lorenza said...

I guess he was really hungry!
Happy Wednesday!
Kisses and hugs

Sarge said...

Hey Remington!
Wow, a bear!! That's totally cool. I'd rather have a bear in the bird feeders than a squirrel any day! I'd love to see a pix next time!
Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

Marilyn said...

I've had a variety of small wild animals here, but if I ever have a bear out here on the plains, I'm headin' to the hills. ♥♫

Mr. Pip said...

A real live bear!!!! Did he scare away the feral cats or maybe the feral cats scared him away!

Your pal, Pip

Jazzi said...

WOW!! That guy looked pretty scary. I hope stays away so he wont bother you guys!!

Alfie said...

maybe it was one of the kitties after a big meal? but bears?! sounds scary!

everytime i read your posts, i always anticipate what you'll be wearing hehe :D nice hat!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

That bear sure has poor manners! Beth is so kind hearted to consider leaving out something yummy for Mr. Crabby Guest! Don't get too close.

Chatty Crone said...

Hey remember - that bear is a lot bigger than you are.

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh my goodness Remington, your Magic Forest is filled with all sorts of wonderful creatures. All of the bears here stay closer to the hills.

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

He must have been REALLY hungry, to tear up everything looking for food. Good thing the deer weren't there at the same time. Maybe it was a mama bear looking for food so she could feed her cubs? Still, we'd sure think twice before setting up a bear feeding station in the yard. If nothing else, it could be so dangerous for the bears if they got used to humans and got the wrong idea that all humans are as nice as Beth & Mike.

♥I am Holly♥ said...

I know I made a comment on this one before and blogger ate it. Try again...that bear looks like the one that Holly thinks is lurking in our backyard!! What damage he did!!! Lots of love, Debbie & Holly

Sagira said...

OMG! My mom is SOOOOOOO scared of bears. She would shiver and shake knowing there was one that close to our house. EEK. Be careful out there Rem!
