Rob and my brother went hunting for a day on the island. After seeing nothing all day long, ready to pack it in for the day, they spotted this bear.
I was pretty impressed with my mother's flexibility and openness as the hide was kept in her deep freeze, the head in their garage, and the meat carefully butchered on their back patio and then coiled into many many sausages in her kitchen.... good thing the sausage turned out! After we all took turns tasting the meat, it passed the test. It is good. We now have 48 pounds of bear meat to eat until we leave for Madagascar.
