Recently, a waaaaay up on Bear Back Mountain two cavalier playmates were discovered engaging in what was initially thought to be a competitive game of leap-frog?! Fortunately, the trained eye of a Tide Rip Naturalist (who didn’t want to be named) was present and able to accurately discern that the feral vermin were actually engrossed in a very friendly match of (ahem) piggyback? Unlike traditional human rules however, this battle of the sexes had temptress Mrs. Robinson employing some fascinating strategies including seductive walk-bys combined with calculated flirtatious caresses all in a desperate attempt to glean the attention of her would-be adolescent stud. Only when he could muster the energy, would he half-heartedly retaliate with the ole bear style mount/aggressive scruff nibbling combo, all the while still chewing his sedge?! Aforementioned bear behaviourist who shall simply be referred to as ‘Derek’ dismissed it as a blurred line somewhere between inexperience and performance anxiety.
In other Knight news, the neighbours are all still mowing the lawn and rollin’ rocks when the tide permits. The babies are growing fast on their sedge grass milk smoothies and, when not feeding, Lenore is still breeding, actively seeking donors for her 2015 line-up.
Grizzly bears and black bears, deer and wolves, eagles and an amazing array of seabirds, there’s always something to see on a Tide Rip Grizzly Tour!!!
