Black Bear
 
I was in the parking lot at the Sanibel postal center and in the middle of the day, I saw a black bear run across Pinellas Place roadway. It was either a bear or the biggest dog I ever seen in my life.

Might have to start trapping and re-locating them, since much of their food sources are being eliminated by TV expansion.

Nah...not the way we just throw garbage bags out at the curb.

Hmmmm, maybe all those tasty snacks we all leave out on our driveway every garbage day might have something to do with it.

Those tasty snacks definitely have something to do with it!
I will never understand why residents put garbage in the trash when a garbage disposal is equipped in every single home in TV.

And I won't mention that these thousands of plastic bags twice a week in the landfill don't disintegrate. NO, I won't mention it!

Let's poison the environment and let it be the next generation's problem. And the next generation, and the next generation, and the . . . . . . .

Actually, I was surprised at the way TV collects garbage; in many "upscale" communities in FL, you are required to have a specified garbage can in the "community color" that is designed so that a truck can just pick it up and dump it mechanically.
Time for TV to get a little class.
It would also make life a little harder for the critters like rats, coyotes, raccoons, possums and bears to get to the trash. Not to mention the neighbors that let their dogs check out and pee on the bags.

Looked up and there was a bear sitting on a branch
