    Aww its small and kind of cute.

    The bears are always up in the neighborhoods during the winter...I've just never had them bother my house. My neighbors have always had issues with them in the past at both places I have lived here.

    The bears are protected. I am not sure if they will do anything if you report them. Probably not.

    I had a dream that the bear got me when I went out in the backyard. This bear is getting on my nerves!



    For comparison I wear a size 9.5 (and the first person that says something about the size of my feet is getting smited! )

    I thought I saw on some Animal Planet show that they tag (to track) the bears that go near people and relocate them somewhere. That was a long time ago though.

    I really had no idea, so I googled it and this is what I found:

    https://myfwc.com/wildlifehabitats/w.../living/myths/

    Myth #3: Relocating black bears is the best and easiest way to deal with a conflict bear.

    FWC has found that relocating bears is not an effective strategy to reduce human-bear conflicts. In a recent study, almost 70% of relocated bears left the area where they were moved. Bears often leave the new areas because most places where bears can be moved already have resident bear populations, which can make it difficult for the relocated bear to remain. In addition, relocated bears often try to return to their original location. Those bears wander through unfamiliar areas and cross busy roads, creating a danger to the bear and to motorists.

    Relocating bears also does not always stop their conflict behavior. FWC found that at least 50% of relocated bears exhibit conflict behavior again. In those cases, even if the bear stays where it was moved, all that has been done is a shift of the conflict issue to a new neighborhood. Most locations in Florida that experience bear conflicts are in bear range, and so even if FWC removed a bear that is visiting your neighborhood, the chance of another bear finding that same food source is very high.

    Bears and other wildlife that linger in neighborhoods are a symptom of the problem of wildlife having easy access to human-provided foods. If the unsecured food source--garbage, compost piles, livestock, and pet/livestock/bird foods—are eliminated, the problem is eliminated. Bears will move out of the neighborhood to search out another food source.

    I know they can relocate nuisance gators as long as they are under a certain size. If they're over that size I've heard they will find their way back.

    In my little suburb, there aren't. But if you drive 20-30 minutes to say El Dorado county, there are bears there (that area is a lot more woodsy).

    My ex-wife called herself 'the bear." She'd always say, "Don't poke the bear" when we'd get into arguments. Well, she finally got relocated. Thankfully she hasn't found her way back.

    I don't take "jokes" that will hurt my business lightly.
    With that being said, I just had someone in California purchase a digital camera from me on Facebook Marketplace.
    My husband worked for USPS and UPS so he knows how to package stuff.
    He asked me where the camera was going. I told him California.
    He then said, "Let's put a plastic straw in here."
    HUH?!
    "I heard plastic straws were banned in California."
    WTF?! I instantly took offense to that.
    Here I am trying to start reselling stuff to make money for us since I have to stay home and take care of a baby and I'm not good at keeping a job. I'm not sure a remote job would work for me with how needy my baby is and how I'm trying to keep my baby away from screens. My son will literally crawl to wherever I am and watch me. He won't play with toys. No. He'll watch me.
    So I instantly took offense, because I don't want some girl in California to get mad at some random straw in her package.
    Looking back now, I probably shouldn't have started yelling and slamming stuff, because now. I have no cell phone. That's right. My cell phone is smashed to smithereens. I was taking a bath and asshole husband came in, grabbed my phone, and threw it on the ground.
    But back to California, my husband thinks they're a bunch of granola eating pansies that thinks everything is bad for the environment and their bodies. Vegan wack jobs. Sorry Nic B.
    I'm so glad my stupid annoying father-in-law is dead, because he's the one that instilled these values in him and if he was still alive, I'd give that asshole a piece of my mind, cancer or no cancer be damned.
    So yeah. Husband tried to ruin business with a not funny suggestion. I took offense. Phone ruined.
    I hate my fucking life!

    I'm so sorry that you're going through this. Not for nothing, but your husband breaking your phone concerns me greatly. It's pretty abusive behavior.

    As for CA, he can think whatever he wants. He can come here and find out for himself. I can't guarantee he'll return if he acts like that around the locals.

    Please be careful. No offense, but with everything you've mentioned of him, I don't like him. Just being honest. He sounds abusive.

    No offense taken. I am not at all a vegan, or "hippy" btw. I love me some meat.

    I don't think plastic straws are "banned" per se. I know a lot of places that have them still....you go to any fast food place and you still get a straw with your drink. It seems like a lot of places try not to encourage it as much. When I go to Starbucks, they have a new lid for the cold drinks, a lot like for the hot ones so it's just a hole for you to drink from. I always ask for a straw and they will give it to me. You have to ask, though. I have this thing where I don't want to put my mouth on the lid where people have touched, yuck.

    Ditto. Someone with that kind behavior raises all sorts of red flags.

    Heck. Even here in South Dakota there are places that side eye you if you ask for a straw. My friend gave me some reusable straws for Christmas... so it's not just a CA thing.
