I could be wrong , but I believe those come from a plant.
I always wondered what they were. Tracked a shot bear once and came across a small plant ( flower of some kind if I remember right)
Been wishing I had taken a pic of it ever since
We always call it fertilizer seeds

Id say the first pile is kinnikinnick or more common name "Bear Berry". It's an edible low ground cover plant that likes drier forested areas with single red berries all over it.

Mountain Ash is not endemic to Washington, so if we're arguing about which red berry is in the poo, the nod goes to kinnikinnick/bearberry.

Lots of mountain ash in the Cascades. Norm Trapp from up on Stevens pass provided a horse packing service and I had him pack me in 5 times to the Frosty Pass-Marys Pass area. He said that after the hucks were gone the bear would start feeding on the Mountain Ash which were plentiful in the area. ALL the drainages had mountain ash. I've seen them, saw mountain ash berries in the poo , and would glass clumps of mountain ash trees/bushes for bear. Not arguing just plain simple facts.

Bear poo and Bigfoot two top topics if you ask me.

The bears that keep leaving poo in the road have been chowing on apples and blackberries.  I do not know if bears poop in the woods but they sure as heck poop all over the roads.

Indeed, I stand corrected.  http://science.halleyhosting.com/nature/basin/5petal/rose/mtash/casmtash.htm

I was reading about mountain ash in a place that for some reason totally omitted that variety and said it was only Eastern North America and Eurasia.  That's what I get for trusting what I read online, I guess...

Not arguing just trying to educate you :hello:

Now....what caused this bear to BLOW OUT the gravel where the poo impact was on the gravel road??  As seen in Holy Bear Crap thread a couple years ago. Size 10 boot.

Eating wild plums..Here is the tree limb the bear broke off while feeding and then took a dump. I drove past this spot an hour earlier going to a lease and on the way back the limb was broken off and the poo was in the road. You can see the shape of the bears butt where the poo splattered all around as it squatted. Can you just imagine the sound???

I'd probably do the same thing if I ate 25 pounds of plumbs. Well, maybe not in the road, but...
