Mr. Meanie plus arrival of the trumpeters

At dawn this morning Mr Meanie - our male bald eagle - eradicated one goose. He proceeded to gorge on it while his mate waited patiently at a safe distance.

After close to an hour of working on the carcass Mr. Meanie decided to share the spoils. They both eventually flew off - greatly overloaded - to the nearest trees on the south shore to digest their breakfast. Now, there are numerous crows, ravens and other small hawks partaking of the remains. Quite the pecking order.

We also had a visit by a flock of trumpeter swans. These arrived at noon.

Mounted Black Bears for Sale

One morning twenty years ago Hana and Miro Struss were driving to Shuswap Lake with some friends. They spotted a bear in the ditch that was probably killed by a car during the night. Since they are crazy lovers of animals, they decided to keep it. It took two big guys to get the bear into their station wagon. They brought it home and put it in big freezer. It stayed there for several weeks while researched taxidermists in the area. They found one in Vernon where they took their little bear to be mounted. But one was not enough! They didn't want the big bear to be lonely so they bought another small baby bear already mounted. The two bears have been keeping each other company ever since.

Now the time has come to part with the mounted bears, and they hope somebody will be willing to take care of them. If anybody is interested in buying them, please call: 250 374 8570 or email:
