It is supposed to be a beautiful day here - 61F/16C. I just hope there is no wind. I am hoping to get out for a while today. After sleeping most of the last 2 day, I feel like I need to clear out the cobwebs. ROFL_sm.gif

Katie, thanks for keeping us up to date on Mina. I keep her in my thoughts and prayers.

Peetie, the prince is in my prayers as well.

I finally got around to openning a package that arrived Thursday. Two bowls I ordered from the e auction site to replace two that were chipped. The bowls are perfect, but the real excitement is that the seller packed the bowls in his local newspapers. I love reading other towns' papers. ROFL_sm.gif

Cat - good morning and hope you feel better soon!

Lala those are very nice pictures of the eagle. Which Lumix did you say you bought? Thought you said 23x but did not find that. Is it waterproof?

Simone, how is everything? Hope you and your horses are doing better today.

Pair rescue cub they discovered walking on road

user posted image user posted image
Greg Jensen (holding the young black bear) and Derek Amerongen fed and housed the animal in a chicken coop until the Assiniboine Park Zoo agreed to give it a temporary home in its new centre for polar bears.

Posted by: Jenny Ford 02/24/2012 Winnipeg Free Press

"I noticed this little black thing running along the side of the road," he said. "I thought it was someone walking their dog at first. I came up closer and I saw it wasn't a dog, it was a black bear." The bear looked malnourished, and he knew it was unusual for a bear to be out this time of year. "She was very dazed and tired-looking and looked like she was on the move lots".

Figuring the bear must be orphaned, they followed its tracks through the woods. They found no signs of a mother bear.
Jensen used a thick jacket to grab the bear by the scruff of its neck.
(It was put into a dog kennel for transport and then housed in a chicken coop which it escaped from and had to be recaptured)

Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship went to get the bear on Wednesday morning after finding a home for it at the zoo.

"For us, it didn't make sense not to help this animal out," said Tim Sinclair-Smith, director of zoological operations at the zoo. He said he suspects the bear is orphaned. The zoo didn't expect its new centre for polar bear cubs would have a black bear as its first guest, but Sinclair-Smith said it's a good opportunity to test the facilities.

"There's one good thing about black bears," he said. "They're very good climbers, they're very inquisitive, and they'll definitely test our facilities. If there's any weak spots, they'll definitely find them."

Currently, the bear is quarantined for 30 days until her medical work is complete. She'll then be able to roam around the facilities until they can find an accredited zoo as her new home, Sinclair-Smith said.

Bill Watkins, a biodiversity conservation zoologist for Manitoba Conservation, said the bear shouldn't have been picked up by people.

"We encourage people to leave wildlife alone," he said. "This is a bit unique, because you don't see black bears out in the winter very often, but in the summer, a lot of mother animals leave their young alone while they go off to feed. Just because you see an animal alone doesn't mean it's an orphan."
