Two things were certain for little Isadora Grumio, 7, on Saturday in downtown Vallejo.
First: She is a proud student at Annie Pennycook Elementary School. Second: Fake bear scat is still gross even if it’s not real.
“I didn’t like,” Grumio said. “It smelled like rubber. Gross.” She did show off a water bottle that was adorned with the Pennycook name — so Saturday wasn’t a total loss.
Grumio was one of hundreds who stopped by the U.S. Forest Service booth as part of the annual Visions of the Wild Film and Arts Festival. Called the Nature Discovery Zone, fake scat from various animals, including grey wolves, was also on the table.
