Based on intelligence gathered from our satellite sources, in addition to trade-secret algorithms devised from years of due diligence (read: tea leaves), our Tide Rip Team of Bear-Seeking Specialists have been locating grizzled critters in the most unlikely of places as of late. Yes, has legs, will travel! One can only speculate as to what motives may be serving as the catalysts for these migrations, but it would seem that the complex maze of islands and islets, rocks and reefs known as the Broughton Archipelago has become the late summer playground for a number of bears some of which are familiar to us, and some of which are new acquaintances. Although this is a time of year otherwise dedicated to social tolerances congregating around salmon-bearing streams, instead these bears have chosen a more solitary existence at the expense of meagre sustenance including staples of inter-tidal goodies and late season berries. Meanwhile in the Cove, the salmon continue to trickle in, preparing for the spawn which should commence in mid-late September and desperately dodging would-be predators in the meantime. Although some of the likely suspects haven’t been seen in weeks, long-time resident Lenore, is still seen regularly with her two C-O-Y, the whole family now sporting the latest in winter fashion what with their darkened fluffy coats (see above).
