Bears!

Recommended Posts

Poachers have killed bears there in the past, so how is another one news worthy? is it in town or did it attack someone?

As the bear herd grows to huntable  numbers the sightings will grow more frequent, no doubt. But in some parts we have always had bear sightings and occasional depredation of live stock. not really a big deal.

This is news to me and probably most of the people I know including my family that has lived in Jefferson County for the last fifty years. I know the State has been trying to keep the lid on the fact that the bear population has been growing and expanding in Missouri but I didn't realize that they were doing such a good job. The bear in the story has been getting into trash cans in the Arnold area. On a side note, a friend from church showed me a picture of a mountain lion taken recently in the Moscow Mills area taken by his daughter at her farm.
