|A black bear near Elliott Lake Ontario|
This one looks like it's pretty young and getting "out of Dodge" quickly.
Almost out of sight...
And a watcher - Great Grey in the far north...
We are truly blessed to be able to see many of these creatures still, if we go into the wilds. But if we continue to allow governments to make illogical decisions, not only for wildlife but wild lands, environmentally sensitive places, our rivers, lakes, streams and other waters there isn't going to be much left except an industrial wasteland.
Just my opinion of course, but I do hope that everyone becomes more aware of what's around us/them this year and pays attention to how it is being managed. It could well be critical for our combined future.
Thanks Mike for the photos and permission to use them.
