    As far as what the scat is..I don't know but the scale suggests big dog.

    This last weekend on Lake Superior folks were wigged out about a paw print that was some five inches across. They were convinced it was bear.

    But it had only four toes. Ergo possibly Newfie.
    It would not be a big dog. It is on private land that does not get access by humans unless of course they are trespassing. Very remote area. There is a access road in (gated) and this scat was located 3 miles in. Saw two piles of bear scat as well as a couple of small coyote scats within the walk in to this particular scat. It is def not a domestic dog. However, I am not against it being a large wild canine.

    I have a size 10 1/2 mens boot and one scat is older and white due to calcium from bone. They other is not so old and you can still see all the hair in the scat. Doubt its a dog.

    I've personally seen a bear up a white pine in the park, over 30ft up as well.

    I don't see why a bear wouldn't go up a pine, they can climb well.

    Isn't it fairly common for a black bear to climb a tree if it feels threatened?

    I had a similar question to myself last Saturday.

    I came across a large white pine (10 to 12 ft. circumference) with the first limb over thirty foot up. There were claw marks up the tree as high as I could see.

    So I asked myself, why would a bear climb a white pine? Then I got to thinking, maybe it was a large cat?

    Any thoughts on this?

    Can't really tell unless you taste it.
