I am sitting in the living room, reading National Geographic Magazine.
Out on the deck there is a soft noise.
I look up, expecting to see one of our nursing Raccoon mothers to have limbed up, to beg for a treat of Cat kibbles or Sunflower seeds.
raised up to full 2.5 meter size,
HUUUUUUGE paws touching the glass
is our large male Bear!
About a meter away from me and looking down on me with curious eyes, as if to say:
” What are you doing?????”
I get up, move to the Glass, our paws/ hands are touching the glass on opposite sides.
Just for a second.
I call out to Peter:
“Peter!! The Petze is here!”
Petze is having none of that.
Visiting time is over.
With hardly a sound he goes down on all 4 , wields around the deck furniture and jumps down – 2 meters to the grass below.
A second later the black night swallowed him.
This morning however we find out, he swallowed all the sweet juice out of both Hummingbird feeders.
