Affordable Housing for Bruins

Logging interests operating on the Alpine Plateau have inadvertently constructed hundreds of bear huts from their tailings debris. The huts, called Bear Havens, address the shortage of caves due to the exploding bear population. These fury subdivisions may be a quick fix but the dwellings are thrown together and not expected to sustain the mammals for more than a winter or two. (Like ski lodges?) This is affordable housing like we have never imagined. Multiple use regs are satisfied. Building inspections are lax. Although the “Built in America by Bears” slogan is a bit misleading, the structures are expected to take advantage of high altitude solar and seasonal wind power by spring. Despite what many fear is rampant socialism at least our bears will stay warm this winter. (Toole photo)
