Bearfoot in the Outfitting Building

I went up to the outfitting building last night to look for something. I can’t remember what I went up there for but that isn’t important.  What is important is there were footprints everywhere.  It looked like someone had walked around without shoes on after walking in the mud.

I started to think about what I was seeing and what I wasn’t seeing. I wondered first off, who was walking around barefooted?  Then I wondered, where are the heel marks? Why are the pads and toes just appearing on the floor?  Then I looked closer.  What in the heck?

These prints weren’t from bare feet, they were from BEAR FEET!  Sure enough after inquiring about it we were told the story.  It wasn’t a very long story and it went kind of like this, “The door was left partially open and lo and behold, the bear walked right in.”  I guess the bear found some powdered apple cider it liked and a few other items but that was it. It could have been much worse.
