The Old Timer.

Well, he looks like he has been through lots of wars! This is Bear. Missing teeth, torn off ears, and many scars - who knows what this fellow has seen, or how old he may actually be. His many scars may have been caused by many fights with other raccoons, dogs, or even a car. He ain't telling. He was however a regular at the retreat last summer. Bear was never agressive, but he was always very cautious. in reality he is probably just another gentle giant.

He looked like a tough old guy, but I have no idea how old. He was easy to recognize though, and had a good personality. Hope to see him again this summer. Rusty.
