bear close

2 August 2013 7:00
This morning just before 700 a bear showed up on the banks of Solvatnet observing 131 moulting geese. One flare was fired to chase it off back into the sea. There it tried to sneak upon a resting seal on the bank attached to prins heinrichsøya. The seal left just in time.
The bear continues to the shore east of town with three seal heads popping up around him. The weather is a bit hazy.

This is the 6th time already since we have been here this summer. Three times a mother with cub, so 9 times a bear encounter.
