Quote:
A B.C. photographer snapped a new angle on grizzly bear behaviour last week, after one sauntered up and decided to see what life was like on the other side of the camera.

Jim Lawrence, of Revelstoke, submitted his photo of the photographer-bear to CBC Radio One's B.C. Almanac for its Listeners' Lens gallery, and told this story to go along with it:

"The grizzly in the photo was fishing for Kokanee and making his way upstream. I set the camera up at an opening in the brush thinking I’d get a photo of him across the way.

"I should know better than to guess what a bear is going to do. He crossed to my side and scrambled up the bank, at which point I dashed back to the truck for another camera.

"They say intelligent species are curious and the big bear was no exception. He approached the camera cautiously, sniffing deeply, then stood up for a closer inspection. For the longest time, he studied the screen and buttons then, with a huge long-nailed paw, gently tugged on the strap.

"The weight of the long lens caused the camera to pivot quickly upward, startling the big fellow at which point he kind of shrugged, and went back fishing."
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

See, people let their imaginations run wild about zombies taking over the earth, but bears are the real threat. Bears are more intelligent than zombies, and much better looking. And they could control the earth, if they wanted.

But no, they don't want.

They want to fish.

For now.

(BTW: Planet of the Apes? People kid themselves by thinking that apes are something like second place on the evolutionary scale. They aren't. And first place is debatable. Planet of the Bears might have been a much more believable--and frightening--story,)

To add to that it should have been"Goldylocks and the Three Apes". Smile
If I were to agree with you. Then we would both be wrong. As of Apr 5, 2015 10:26 pm I have 880 posts. Used to have over 1,000

Hey Stony, I know you were talking about maybe someday relocating to the USA. Even though this house appears to be for sale, I think you should scratch Rockaway, NJ from your list of potential locations.

I know it. And for a lot of different reasons.

I lived in Allamuchy, NJ, for 18 months, in 1993 and 1994. We often shopped at the Rockaway Mall (and have a picture in their parking lot of snow piled 10 feet high behind our minivan). Ask me about the Great Sneaker Scandal associated therewith.

Not a complete fail however. After the war former Nazi scientists spearheaded the development of the Polar-is missile.
