Brown Bear: droppings

Yet another photo from our mammal tracking experience in Poland. This time, the fresh droppings of Brown Bear found in the Bieszczady Mountains. Note my size 44 (11 UK) boot for comparison. This dropping was rather pale and upon close inspection we found that it was full of seed and grain. The bear had obviously been feeding on grain put out by hunters nearby for Red Deer and Wild Boar. Bears that have fed upon berries and/or flesh are invariably darker than this.
