Counting the Bears

I have been working on a few more of my bear pictures this Sunday afternoon. Oh my, they are such beautiful creatures!  I know that you are counting the days until the Katmai brown bears series begins. 

By happenstance, one of the gals who was on our Alaska trip last year just sent me the link to this video. It shows a field counting and tagging exercise for black bears in Ontario, Canada.  Perhaps this will tide you over a bit.  Enjoy!


  1. I love Rick Mercer. He cracks me up. Thanks for the laugh. I'm sure this procedure is much more serious without him there. Imagine being his teacher.

  2. Well, I can't watch so hustle it up on the bear photo's young lady! :)


  3. Thanks! I'll enjoy this video and I can't wait for your photos! I love the bear in your banner! Sweet hugs! ♥

  4. I'm on my laptop and can never hear videos on here. I'll try and be patient while I wait for your photos :)

  5. Awesome video! Loved seeing how they handled the bears, and the guys were so funny. Now looking forward even more to your photos!

  6. Oh my goodness. I didn't expect him to be so hilarious. Great video. I didn't realize they went to such great lengths.
    Can't wait for your pictures.

  7. I've seen this video before..it's pretty funny! Thanks for sharing!

  8. You Little Tease!!!!Hahahahaaa.... We are ALL now pretty rabid waiting for our Bears!!!!Lololol....
    OhWelllll....guess I'll watch that thar Video....MARTY!!!! GIT MOMMA!!

  9. You are so bad, tempting us with that headline! Cute video, made me laugh. Not something I'll be trying soon.... :) Especially because we have NO SNOW at all and I don't know what our bears are doing. Sleeping under stumps, I suspect.

  10. FINALLY a shovel-ready project!

    Bwwaaahhaaa, seriously those cubs are unbearably cute. I'd be kissin' an' lovin' on 'em until they made me stop.

    The mama was smaller than I expected! And what soulful eyes! I hope she likes her new collar with extra songs, and I hope she doesn't mind the people-smell on her babies!!!

    Now I'm going to share a link to this vid with all my kids. They'll love it.


Marty, here! Donna loves comments, and I faithfully pass them on to her. Thank you so much for visiting!
