    Default What a bear can do to a Fishing Camp

    I did a fly in a couple of years back and decided to walk the portage into the lake beside is that also had a fishing cabin on it. Apparently a bear got in there and did some re-modeling. It is amazing how much damage they can do once inside.

    The name of the lodge has been hidden to protect the innocent

    What a mess! Appears he did some harm to himself when breaking in.

    I wouldn't have guaranteed it was bears until I saw the pic of the coffee pot. I've seen wolverine do similar damage and hate to say it but I've seen squatters and trespassers trash camps in similar fashion.

    I had a couple of incidents of Bears trashing cottages in the Bancroft area many years ago. Owners claimed the damage with insurance companies that promptly cancelled the policies. That left them to find other high risk coverage at ridiculous premiums,but,it was either that or face mortgage foreclosure without insurance coverage. The damage the Bears did was incredible. Every square inch was completely destroyed.
    It's better to walk alone than with a crowd going in the wrong direction.

    It doesn't look like a lot of damage...just a mess. I wouldn't bother with an insurance claim, the deductible would probably be higher than the cost to clean it up.

    I know a guy who lost a nice BBQ, to a bear.

    A friend of mine had a bear peek in to their camp through the window, the window broke. The bear had its guts dumped out by the plate glass window, he walked through the camp leaving parts of him all over the place, destroyed a few things and then broke out the back door to go die in the bush. They then put bars on that particular window.
