A big bear scat

There was a big bear scat in the driveway today.  According to the local Bear Smart program, the bears are eating 20,000 calories a day to plump up for hibernation.  This pile of scat was mostly apples.

A lot of apples.  I thought you could see how big the pile was if I put an apple next to it, but you can’t tell what size the apple is.

It looks like a big loaf next to the mayo, but mayo jars come in more than one size so you still can’t be sure how large this pile is.

Matchbox cars come in just one size, and from here you can see that bear left a pile to be reckoned with. 

or,

a big bear was hanging around, and all I got was this crappy photo.
