This is a new bear. Green tags. I2. Which, if I'm reading the DEEP website correctly, means that it was the ninth bear tagged in 2012. I'm assuming 2012 rather than 2002 because he was fairly small - and I say "he" because apparently they radio collar the sows so that they can find the dens and count cubs.
Great. So in addition to an adult sow who is unafraid of either humans or dogs, I also have a juvenile boar to deal with. Fabulous.
I'm beginning to think wistfully about the years of dealing with deer eating the gardens.
