One Word Sunday


This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Empty.

Two empty bear resistant garbage cans on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. The signs are to let the garbage truck operator know that they’re empty, not because the local Black Bears can read.

They’re bolted down to concrete pads to stop the bears flipping them over. The orange pole between them is to mark their location so the snow plough operator doesn’t hit them. Although it looks as if the plough has hit them in the past.

It doesn’t help keep them away. It just stops them getting into the garbage. I have photos of the cans covered in muddy bear prints where they’ve been trying to get at the garbage.
