pelt is a fucking animal skin
report is a fucking review of something
he had an animal skin and review of seeing the animal, classified it as a bear (fucking decided it was obv a bear)
have some Gallows for your trouble
Someone probably found the fur of an animal, (pelt is the fur of an animal that has been stripped off).
Then knowing that someone had reported to the local authorities that they had seen a bear in the area, that person went ahead and classified it as a bear, rather than a wolf or cougar or whatever.
It could be read like this: With just a pelt and the knowledge that someone had reported seeing bears in the area, he classified the pelt as a bear pelt.
Many thanks, confusion is gone. I can live happily from now on.
thought it meant he made a type. i don't make typo's i make new words.
