Re: Bear (mis)Management in Yellowstone

Bil and Karen, in my previous post, I said: "please keep in mind that it only takes one visitor to unwittingly do something stupid or make one wrong move or gesture that can turn a good bear into a bad bear." IMO, the same thing also holds true for rangers. Lord knows I've seen more than my share of...

Re: The Original Rosie Black Bear

Whoa....what a nice shot of Rosie and Boo Boo, Linda. I just came across a couple more pix of Rosie from 2004. I'll add them to my Flickr photo stream tomorrow. You'll get a kick out of one of them. Rosie was standing on her hind legs sniffing the vents at the top of the Tower vault. Someone was ins...

Re: Bear (mis)Management in Yellowstone

Were the rangers new seasonal rangers or were they full-time rangers who regularly patrol those areas? Here's why I ask. Many new seasonal rangers who are working in the Park for the first time, are not familiar with bears, let alone being familiar with specific bears. They also don't know the bear'...

Re: A few weasel shots from this spring

Wow, what a find and what wonderful captures. I think that's a "least weasel". I've only come across 2 of that particular species in the GYE over the years. One was in a pile of rocks behind of house and the other rascal I was zipping through some wild rose bushes at the Slough Creek Campground in Y...

Re: A few weasel shots from this spring

Wow, what a find and what wonderful captures. I think that's a "least weasel" if I'm not mistaken. I've only come across 2 of that particular species in the GYE over the years. One was in a pile of small rocks behind our house and the other rascal I was zipping through some wild rose bushes at the S...

The Original Rosie Black Bear

After seeing everyone's pix of Rosie and her cubs over by Tower this year, I thought that some of you might enjoy seeing and meeting the very first Rosie and her two cubs, Yogi and Boo Boo. My most memorable encounter with Rosie happened in September 2004. Hubby and I were visiting some friends who ...

Re: Muskrat and Merlin

Great find on the Merlin, Rik. Yellowstone is right on the edge of its breeding grounds. Could be why most people don't see them very often in the Park. Great shot of a very uncommon bird in the GYE....congratulations! Nice shot of the muskrat, too. I used to see a muskrat not far from the Indian Cr...
