I got another story...I just seem to be full of them. This is another bear story and it's one of my grandfather's but I find it kinda funny.
As I've mentioned in other threads, my grandfather worked as a canoe guide in northern Minnesota and Ontario (this was back in the 1940s). One time while he was on the canoe base, he and the other staff member were outside doing work. While they were working, their dinner which was a big pot of chili was cooking in the kitchen.
A bear got a whiff of it and broke into the kitchen and ate the chili. Some of the staff members caught the bear in the act and it ran off.
Unfortunately, in cases where a bear is willing to break into building, it is necessary to get rid of the bear. Otherwise it can become a serious problem and may potentially hurt someone. So they had to go to town to get a gun and a licence to kill the bear. Along with the gun, they picked up a deck of cards. High card got the gun, low card got the flashlight.
They spend the next few night waiting outside to see if the bear showed up again. Sure enough, it did and they managed to shot and kill. They ended up skinning it and one of them took the bear skin.
My grandfather has a picture of himself next to the bear after they killed it that he still carries in his wallet. That happened back when he was in his early 20s and he is now in his early 80s.
Well, that's my story for now. Anyone else want to share a few before I think of another one. Like I said I'm just full of them.
