Now, in other news ... last night after we went to bed, as we were almost asleep, we woke to the noise of a shotgun. Next door. He fired off at least half a dozen shots, so we knew it was serious. I asked this morning, and sure enough, the bears are awake already. Grrr ... this bear was trying to open up their pig pen, so they are doing repairs this morning. It did get one of their chickens, but both cows and both pigs are unharmed. That's particularly good, because the cow is about to calve and the sow about to farrow! I guess the electric netting fence will be tested sooner than we hoped. Cross fingers and knock on wood that the bears are successfully deterred.
