WILDLIFE

I've just returned from a seven day cruise vacation to Alaska. It was a wonderful trip, but my only disappointment was the lack of wildlife.


I saw several signs saying that it was bear country, but I saw no bears. I took a whale watching sail and saw a few whale sprays and whale tales, but no full sized whales. I saw a lot of eagles, probably because they were injured and could not fly away. The salmon were spawning so I saw a lot of dead salmon


I would really like to see some animals in the wild. Last year, I went to Yellowstone but saw only elk and deer, in the Canadian Rockies I saw elk and deer. Where do I have to go to see bear and wolves.

I suppose I could always take a trip to the Bronx Zoo.

Did you not see any bison when you went to Yellowstone? That's very surprising, though if it was last year you went, Montana and the park had killed more than a 1,000 of them the winter before. Even so, that would be surprising if you didn't see any buffalo.

DEAR MOM,

IF YOU WANT TO SEE BEARS AND WOLVES, JUST STAY IN NJ, OR TRAVEL OVER TO UPSTATE NY. MY SON SEES THEM ALL THE TIME. HE LIVES NEAR KINGSTON, NY. SORRY YOU WERE DISAPPOINTED, BUT YOU GOT A NICE VACATION ANYWAY. WELCOME BACK !!!!!
