Black bear on the pier in Duluth

Thanks to photos from the Duluth Shipping News’ “bear cam” and an audio clip of Ryan Beamer, chief Aerial Lift Bridge operator, PDD now presents this delightful 12-second recap of yesterday’s events at the South Pier of the Duluth shipping canal.

  1. Beamer’s been working on that bridge for 14 years, I think. That adds up to a lot of ships. It’s about time he saw a bear.

  3. The canal was the site of a previous bear encounter back in 1946. You can read about it here:

    So, Moderators, how do I turn that big ugly url into a link in a comment?

  4. Click on the hard-to-read graphic below to see what the code looks like for creating a link.

    I can’t simply type the code in a comment, because then the link would show up and not the code.

  5. “To the person fishing at the end of the pier, the black bear coming toward you will rip your head off and deploy high grade bear manure down your neck-hole with more grace than a ballerina, and he will enjoy it.”

  6. Paul: if you type “&lt;” and “&gt;” instead of “<” and “>”, they will be replaced by “<” and “>” in your comment without showing up as a link. “lt” stands for less than and “gt” stands for greater than.

    “The canal was the site of a &lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”&gt;previous bear encounter&lt;/a&gt; back in 1946.”


    “The canal was the site of a <a href=”” target=”_blank”>previous bear encounter</a> back in 1946.”

    once you submit it, without becoming a link.

    (Likewise, “&amp;” will show up as “&” once you submit the comment, so you can type “&amp;lt;” to write “&lt;” without it being converted to “<”.)

  7. Can’t someone get on the horn to someone to make linking in comments easier? Why isn’t the whole editor available? | May 19, 2012 | New Comment
  8. That’s on a long wish list.

  10. For those who can’t get enough video of black bears, here’s six minutes of Herbie and Fern playing in a tree, with a cameo by their mother, Jewel.
