Just had a black bear visit outside my bedroom window.

I was awake...looking at DU on my iPad and I kept hearing what I thought was my kiddo in the next room thrashing about in his bed. I realized it was outside...I opened my window and saw the plum tree shaking top to bottom. The bear was up in it knocking plums to the ground. The deer have grazed all the fruit from the reachable branches and the bear will get whatís left.

3. i would rather face a cougar than a bear..

...both are on my land but only the cougar decided to stare in my window.. the bears just hang out and wait. Stay Safe! keep a lid on your garbage can.

6. I'd take a bear over a lion!

Cats are stealthy...and can creep up on you. Yikes!

We have a bear proof garbage can thankfully. A fed bear is a dead bear and garbage endangers them. I kinda like that theyíre around.

12. Let him have the pick-a-nick basket!

Or anything else he wants.

Except the bacon. Fight him for the bacon. You won't win, but he'll KNOW he's been in a fight!

9. I like them too. They're curious,

smart and good problem solvers. I tried to get video but it is pitch black out there.

10. Really cool!

I love bears, and all animals, but I do worry about coming upon one while hiking in the woods (sometimes itís rather remote). I live in New Hampshire. But thatís cool to see one outside in a tree shaking down fruit, really smart animals.

11. Love bears.

But being close to your home can be unnerving, as well as thrilling. So, I'm envious.

We have bear scat all over our out-of-state property. Neighbors send us pic of bears on their ppty & decks.
