Tasha, Ted, Brown Mystery Bear, and a BBC Rerun - UPDATE October 8, 2020

Ted as a cubTed as a cubWith her newly enlarged den stolen by Holly, Tasha doesn’t seem to be digging a new one. On October 5, Taught caught Tasha rolling back and forth in the stream in her full winter coat in this 2:44-minute video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQPX7VV8MEQ She had to cool off with the temperature at 63F°.

Sharon found the cute picture of Ted as a cub with his little red wagon that she wrote about a couple days ago. This was back in 1997.

Last night, the brown mystery yearling was here weighing 88.5 pounds and limping on his left front leg. He was the only bear seen all day. Others might have come later during the night. No bears were seen all day today as of 7:22 PM. Deer were here eating grass and weeds instead.

Some of you saw a rerun of the BBC documentary ‘My Bear Family and Me’ about Lily and Hope back in May 2010. I learned about the rerun from some of you and heard that the 3-part series was airing on the 7th, 8th, and 9th on BBC Two. I don’t know if it is airing in the US or just in England.

Thank you for all you do.
