Bears Outside Our Windows

What a treat! When I went to open the window, I saw three brown shapes on the hillside. At first, I thought they were deer, but seemed too big and too brown. It was then I realized they were bears. It appears to be a mama and her two cubs, probably twins about a year old. That's a deer carcass, but I don't know if they found it or killed it themselves. Maybe I don't want to know.
See that brown spot over Ken's shoulder? That's our bears

Although you can't see it, Ken set up his video camera to take the close-ups. We weren't going out there! A mama bear with her cubs, guarding a carcass? I'm not sure we were safe in our living room.
There may not be the best pictures because they were taken through the windows and zoomed in. 


All kids fight.

That's the tree they were trying to hide behind.
