December 1928 "When the Anderson fireman-lookout was taken down this year the telephone on the lookout point was not taken down as there was still some danger of fire weather and it was thought that it might be necessary to send a man up there again which, however, was not necessary. When we went in a short time later to pack out the equipment, the telephone was found torn down, the front torn off the phone, and in general it was a sad wreck. A few hairs were found clinging to the box that identified the destroyer of government property as a bear. One of the boys said that the bear must have tried to call up and when the phone wasn't answered decided there was trouble on the line and took the phone apart to see what was wrong. He sure did a thorough job of taking apart, but I doubt if he located the trouble. R.F. Cooke" (Six Twenty-Six)
