Fried Bear

Yes there are bears around Stormy Lake

A power line broke and lay hot on the ground for some time. It scorched one pole and a 20 cm wide strip of earth between three poles. Fortunately it did not start a forest fire. But it did electrocute and cremate two large animals. 

When the Hydro people went into the bush to fix it they found the burned up carcasses of a bear and, underneath it, a deer. 

Apparently ATVers had driven over the hot wire too!

A lot of bones and black fur

Here are the jaws, the skull was missing - perhaps dragged away by scavengers.

Most of the tooth is below the jaw

May not have been a full grown bear.
