So, I guess these people should revisit their findings about the time for and how bears "hibernate" because obviously they discounted the only theory that really matters which is Climate Change.

But Ithink I'll wait till NASA and it's acolytes make their minds up about this extremely rare occurrence before I'll say it's going to continue because it's warmer in Darfur this year. [B-o]



How about bear facts from the Yukon, instead of Texas?

The life of a Grizzly Bear revolves around an intensive search for the most nutrient-rich foods it can find. It will spend October through April in a winter den, before emerging in spring to search for food.

Okay we'll talk Yukon hiking because you forgot to mention.

Are there bears during the winter?

It is not entirely necessary for a bear to hibernate during the winter. In fact, bears do not truly hiberate - they enter a dormant phase and lower their body temperature by a few degrees, but can have periods of wakefulness. In colder climates like the Yukon, bears usually 'hibernate' due to a lack of food sources and to give birth. However, unlike a true hibernating mammal, bears can wake up and leave their den during the winter. If you were to collapse a den by walking over it, there would be a good chance the bear would come out to see what woke it up. Nevertheless, seeing a bear during the winter in the Yukon would be a rare sight indeed.

So, we don't have to take word of a bear expert from "Texas" to understand that while it's rare for bears to be out of their dens in the winter it isn't an unknown occurrence, even in the Yukon especially since we haven't gotten into winter yet.

You mentioned it, so why would I repeat it? I gave the link, so everyone is free to read it.

But also notice, from that article:

It isn't unknown, but what did the mother and daughter do to wake the bear? Or, was the bear already awake?

Even the article has:

Quote:
Even though winter is around the corner and bears will be going into hibernation, there are still plenty of them around, he said. "We had seen bear tracks out even in the middle of December last season ... the mild falls, you know, they're still out and roaming around."


So, like I wrote:
