Getting The Catch.

Oct27031801

On a visit to Vancouver Island, BC Canada, we had gone to see Port Renfrew and the salmon boats.  We sat on the porch outside the pub/cafe where the locals told us that bears came down to get the fish from the shore. Also, the previous week, a cougar had been seen in the high street.

All of this came to mind last week when a black bear had run down the jetty at Port Renfrew, jumped in a fishing boat attacking the owner. Luckily other fishermen came to the man’s aid and the bear succumbed after a violent struggle. An autopsy showed the bear to be old and thus, very dangerous in these conditions. The fisherman suffered a few good bites, but survived.
