Bear Mauls El Portal Community Center's Backdoor

A couple of weeks ago a black bear decided that it needed to get into the El Portal Community Center for a snack and went in through the back door.


It literally went through the back door and tore it off its hinges. Take a look at the right hand side of the photo above and you can see pieces of the door. The door was made from one and one-quarter inch thick redwood and offered very little resistance to the bear.


Here are the claw marks....

Here is the replacement door that I am making from redwood, a little thicker than the original, but I am using the same techniques as the original builder.
