It has continued to be hot and dry here so this little guy was seeking water to cool off and clean up. His first stop was an incredibly clean water source. However, he became transfixed by something before he had bathed. When he sat to look toward it, he gave us a great view of his current fur coat. The blond fur was the color of his entire coat at the start of this summer. Since then, he's started to get his winter coat... which is much darker. I hope that he keeps some of that beautiful blond fur!
At this first pool, he didn't stay for long. Whatever had his attention caused him to stand up on his hind legs to try to see it better. Soon, he decided that it was time to leave. As he departed, he gave my cam a serious investigation, and I felt lucky that it was in a bear-proof box. That cam is the one that "Bandit" mauled last year and the company fixed for me.
Within a couple of hours, he was at another water pool. This one has very stinky water but it's the favorite bathing place for bears.
He took a thorough bath and then became alarmed about something. He sprinted away from the pool and disappeared into the forest.
That gorgeous bear is just so cool!ReplyDelete
Wow, I've never seen a bear with a coat like that! Adorable :)ReplyDelete
I am wondering if a big cat is nearby.. he looks like he might be 2nd cousin to a skunk. LOL.. he is my first bear that was not a solid color... maybe he should be named Stinky for the water he loves and his looking like a skunk.ReplyDelete
...ggggggrrrrrrrr well, hello handsome!!!... YAM xx
What an interesting color he is. You would think the clean water would be more appealing.ReplyDelete
You're right, pretty entertaining!ReplyDelete
He sure does love his bath:) We were thinking he looked a bit like a blond skunk too:) Or even like he is wearing a blond-colored fur vest the way it goes down his belly and his back:) Have we told you before - LOL - how much we love these videos?ReplyDelete
His blonde fur cape is really striking!ReplyDelete
He is a cutie!ReplyDelete
I think you have a little clown there.ReplyDelete
His fur is so beautiful!ReplyDelete
Those fur colors kind of fit his personality, a bit on the crazy wild side!ReplyDelete
He's a busy boy! It's too bad his wonderful bath got interrupted.ReplyDelete
