If you go down to the town today...

you're in for a big surprise!

A bear went out for a stroll, had similar sense of direction to me and ended up way down in the town in Matsumoto. Not station-and-castle-central-downtown but very definitely big shopping centres, houses and schools rather than mountains area.

They called in the police, fire, city hall and the local shooters group and four hours after the first 110 emergency call they cornered the bear and anesthetized it and released it back in the mountains.

Which mountains? Matsumoto's chosen problem bear relocation location is the mountains right behind us. Well, a fair bit up into the mountains but still, the mountains I can see outside my window...

So, I guess I'll be on the lookout for groggy bears with store cards?

Wearing your bear bell?

Last month a bear was seen on the BEACH in Toyama, less than a kilometer from the inlaws house and probably about 50km from the nearest forest. How do they get so far without being noticed?
