Bear Alert at Lake on Second Basin!!

(Click on Photo to Enlarge) Rusty and Rita were out for an evening ride on a pontoon boat touring the lake when Rusty said to Rita "Do you see what I see"?  Yes, there was a big black bear taking a swim in the lake.  Luckily, Rita had her camera with her, but didn't get it out in time to get a photo of the bear in the water.
She followed the bear up the dock and went around the next boathouse's garage to let the people there know a bear was there and when she turned the corner the bear was 10 feet in front of her .  She said "What a shock, but how exciting!"  The bear was on Dr. Muller's dock.  Maybe he heard Dr. Muller does free dental work for bears??
Rita thought the bear to be old, he was black with a brown face and weighing about 300 to 400 pounds, at least by the size of his footprint.  Guess he wanted to take a bath before his long winter's nap!!
