SOOO.......in order to be able to get some sleep that night Reid and I drove the truck to the Forest Service building, downtown, and left it for the night. This turned out to be a good spot and the bear was all ready to go visit the Fish and Game office the next morning.
You can see the paw prints in these pictures a little. If you look closely you can see smudge marks from his fur on the side of the truck too. Good thing Max heard him before things got bad! What can we expect? We do live in a neighborhood called Bear Valley!
