Bear encounter

This morning just as I left for work there were wet bear prints on our back porch which must have occurred just minutes before I left the house at 0600 hrs. The prints are quite large about 10cm by 15cm. A week earlier a bear has taken out a couple of chunks of a snowmobile seat cushion in the same yard.

I have also noticed bear prints in soft mud by some drill wells in a clearing at the end of our road along the road allowance.

I am an active composter and wonder if that is what is attracting the bear. Did some digging and found ways to improve on rapid control of compost odours, It is all about encouraging aerobic versus anaerobic decomposition.
