    I'd be afraid to go out in the yard. He's huge.

    Judging from that view he looked as if he is one well fed bear to. Yup that is a little to close for comfort

    Did you know you have more bears up there than anywhere else in the state? I found that out when my DD came up there for summer camp. Kids, Cabins, cookies and candy and BEARS!!! not a great combo in my opinion.

    Scary! I've read stories of people working in their gardens who looked up and found themselves face to face with a bear....that's why quilting is sew much safer a hobby!!

    Yikes!!
    I just read about the first fatal grizzly attack in Yellowstone since 1986, a 57 yo man hiking with his wife who was spared. And then read this post..............

    I don't believe in coincidences. :?

    Walking is safe :) They really don't care about us as long as we aren't a threat to the cubs.

    We had a momma and her 3 cubs in the yard one night when we pulled in the driveway, they all ran up the tree.

    One night my son heard noise on the deck, thought a friend was here....uh no! it was the bear :)

    We have black bears here in Vestal NY too. Have seen 4 this year so far. One with a cub, and last week...... one walked across my porch while I was sitting in my living room. It was not more than 3 feet away. BEAUTIFUL!!!! (window between us!)

    I am glad to see that we are not the only ones to have a Momma bear with three cubs.. at first we thought we were imagining that there were three, but then saw her several times later with them and one day my daughter saw the three cubs up a tree down by the pond. My SIL got pictures of Mom in a tree up here but only one of the cubs can be seen in the pic.

    He's a chubby baby. We have black bears galore here in the Florida Panhandle. One walked into an older fellow's kitchen (door was open). Man didn't know what to do so he barked like a dog and the bear ran away. My friend set 24 banana breads to cool out in her screen porch but a bear ripped the screen and ate them all.
