An ambitious and fruitful day in the woods for Mr. Pooh.

Bears love honey.

And bee larvae too. Protein and carbs all in 1 meal!

There must be a traditional remedy for this situation. Pretty sure it does not involve direct confrontation with a bear jonesin' for a honey fix.

Oh bother.

Given a chance, the 1% will consume everything.

Booo, Local Roots is just down the hill from me. If there is one thing I have learned in trying to raise or grow anything out here: Electric fences are your bestest friend.

No, you have it all wrong. I was there, and the only thing I saw was a little black rain cloud.

I think in this context it's correctly spelled "Hunny."

If only those bees had guns. I bet they're thinking twice about shirking their second amendment duty now!

(yes, I know, I know, the second amendment only concerns the arming of bears.)

I thought Andrew Sullivan was in NYC this week.

Bears, America's #1 threat.

@11 It's not him; the bees don't have AIDS.

There is no real way to keep bears out of apiaries once they know the hives are there. The best solution is to put an electric fence up before the bears go poking around.
Trying to do so now would be shutting to door after the horse has left the stable. A bear might be deterred by a painful zap if it's just curious, but a determined one that knows it can find honey on the other side of the fence will just power through it.

We're here.

We're clear.

We don't want any more bears.

My brother had problems with bears in his hives. He put the hives on the roof of his house. It worked fine until he left a ladder leaning against the house. Then he had bears on his roof. Waved a shovel at them and they left, and after that he always remembered to put the ladder away.

@15, D'OH!

It's:

We're here! We're Queer! We don't want any more bears!

Someone alert the Romney campaign! Clearly this too is the fault of the Obama, and can be remedied with tax cuts for the wealth.
