Darn if that bear didn't come back and tear apart the little bit of bees I had been able to save.
You can even see claw marks in the honey frame.
The Game Commission set up a bear trap.
The spring bees that we'll be putting in will be at our house bee yard for now. We'll use our Odin site when we make splits - hopefully the bear will be caught before then!
We'll hook up a marine battery to our solar charger to make sure the fence is staying charged at night.
And keep on trying.
