I live in Edmonton, one of the cities where “The Bear” was a good radio station. This is no longer their website since they moved to a different domain.
The radio station used to broadcast through 106.9FMin Ottawa and they had a massive following of ‘Rockaholics’ who enjoyed some of the attractive shows like the the Gonzo Show with Kaz and Jay as well as other music sessions with enthusiastic radio hosts and presenters such as Travis, Scott Lear, Wicked Wendy.
They also used to organize and schedule various concerts and events across Ottawa and Canada as tried to attract more fans and bring rock fans together. Another strategy they used to gain their popularity and bring fans together was through holding various radio contests where fans would win prizes and thus winning the loyalty of the fans.
Since they abandoned the site, I’ve decided to make it about bears, and Moose. Below are some posts about moose and bears that may interest you.
There are many facts about moose that many people don’t know unless those living in North America regions where these animals are found. Growing up in Newfoundland, I would often go to the woods for a rare glimpse of the huge creatures. They are usually very huge and some can weigh over 1000 pounds. As a matter of fact, they are the largest species of the deer family where they belong to. What I loved about them was their antlers, especially the mature ones.
I would oft climb trees and spend the entire afternoon watching them as they feed or take care of their young ones. It was a fascinating scenery to watch back then; it still is today. However, unlike when I was young when they would stay near our farm yard giving me the best view of them, today they have constrained themselves in mountainous region far from human settlement. Maybe it’s because of the hunting ordeal that they undergo from humankind.
One thing I noted about them while growing was that they often seemed wary of any external threats from predators and human hunters have too proved to be such predators, not better than a pack of coyotes as they kill these wonderful creatures.
I also loved watching as the males took upon each other in a fight. This was one splendid scene that I would often narrate to other kids at school so that I would encourage them to come with me in the moose viewing adventures so that I could have company and dare go further into the woods for more adventures expeditions.
I love bears, though I’ve never had many interactions with bears except for the once or twice that I saw a bear in the zoo. Maybe the best I know about them is from watching wildlife documentaries and reading about them in books.
I used to know a big cuddly bear actually, his name was George. Although, he isn’t so cuddly anymore since he started his weight loss diet, and daily fitness routines. He told me years ago that he would never want to lose weight because he loves how people think he’s so fluffy and snuggly – I mean, who would want someone to cuddle up to? Oh well.
