There are only black bears on Vancouver Island, but one must be when hiking.
We have a resident bear that hangs around our cabin filling up on blackberries and plums from the neighbour's tree.
I managed to take this picture as he wondered by the front of my cabin early one morning.
Here's a picture of his calling card (Bear Scat)
This picture was taken in the tree in front of our cabin.

Slugs are everywhere. They travel on a trail of slim that they generate. They come in all sizes, very tiny to up to 3" long. Those aren't eyes but black dots to make him look fearsome.
