Pond Chatters are on the ball. Taught by Bears caught this 41-second look at Ted’s hind paws that look like he has been a little slow in removing his old foot pads. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=In6jgpB2fpY We’ll see what happens. Will he remove them yet? Or will we see him walking tenderly? Hoping for the best.What I see are the cracked old pads that could be uncomfortable for walking.
Pond Chatters again scored. Taught by Bears noticed that Lucky was focusing in the direction of the pond at the Bear Center. She switched to the other camera to see if anything was going on there. Sure enough. Tasha was out walking in the sunlight for a beautiful shot of her against the snow with the pond and forest in the picture.
In Pennsylvania, someone got a nice shot of the mom and frisky cub with the caption: “If I step on her paw she can’t grab me.”
Thank you for all you do.
