“Can I Talk To U About Your Cable TV?”

[I noticed you’ve got one of those old-fashioned Dish things on your roof, there- with our FiBEAR Optic Cable, your TV reception will never be better!]




  1. Victoria, Mom to 3 Rats (and Two Orange Kittehs) says:

    Well… the bear is cute, but the situation? Not so much.

    If you live in bear country it’s probably not a good idea to have a pet door. More specifically, it’s not a good idea for your pets to have free, unsupervised access to the outdoors. Just a thought.

  2. Yikes. I know black bears aren’t as aggressive as grizzlies but still…a bit scary.

  3. He’s so handsome!

  4. As a warning: licks lips… Got anymore unsupervised pets. I saw this on CNN and it was a pack of bears. One bear got in the house through a sliding glass door. I would not be taking cute pics. But the pic is cute. Sigh.

  5. januaryfarmer says:

    Bears are real cute, just not any place close to the house, car or camp site. Looks like he had a late night.

  6. bear is treating it like it’s like a cat pez dispenser…

  7. I would flip the heck out if I looked over at the pet door and a bear head popped out!

  8. This is why I will NEVER have a pet door in my home. This, and the story I heard of the couple who were used to their cats jumping on the bed at night, so they didn’t think anything of it . . . until one morning they woke up and there was a raccoon in the bed with them. Yikes.

    But the bear is beary handsome. *BBBBBOOOOOOP!* on the nose for him.

  9. Blue Footed Booby says:

    Mythbusters taught me that bears can open unlocked car doors.


    “I’m gonna need this.”

  10. Cutekotori says:

    I read that the bears in this area have been getting closer to hones because of the lack of food due to drought :(.

  11. @Faye – These bears wouldn’t normally come together as a group. They’re very solitary and also really quite sensitive to the natural community in which they live. Of course, they will briefly encounter each other at that special time of year when nature compels the mature and younger adult males to argue about who’s gonna be chose for sexy-time with a female.

    It’s more likely to have been a Mother with her cubs. The cubs will stay with mom for, I think, 2 years (?) until they learn what mom has to teach / they become adults. And because they take so long to graduate survival school, and mom has a new litter every year, there is often a small little bunch of them moving about together. But when a cub matures and becomes an adult, mamma will absolutely not tolerate him/her staying around as she would have already had yet another litter.

    God lover the poor thing, Oysh! Talk about being a mom-taxi, she’s a mom mini van!

    Here’s the link to the CNN article. A few more pictures, too.

  12. BFB, I’d been missing that raccoon clip for years–thanks for finding it!

  13. That’s a terrifying sight! So glad I don’t live in bear country.

  14. Maybe it’s me but I’d be booping that nose with a large cast iron frying pan.
