Since Pooch passed away about five years ago, I have been able to visit Parks like Yosemite now. Still havn't seen a bear there since I was a kid in the mid '60's. I have been to a couple of the spots known for high bear activity. I must be doing something wrong!:) Here kitty, kitty, kitty. Plus, since he passed away, I have yet to see a bear when out bping.
