After alluding to it in the last entry, it’s worth noting here that Castine is playing host to a rather large black bear at the moment. I’m not sure how long he’s been around, but the transfer station attendant managed to grab a picture of him on a game camera. He’s huge.
Thankfully he seems to have not discovered our farm yet. The fence troubles this weekend appear to be something smaller than a bear. So no reason to panic yet.
