Black Bear

bear 6art

I shot this black bear two years ago and watched him grow from a cub to about two hundred pounds over the course of the summer and fall. He spent most of his time feasting on apples from my sons apple tree…which may account for his enormous size.  Sadly, he didn’t show up this year in the spring…probably the victim of a hunters bullet. He didn’t seem to mind me being close by…I took this photo from about 40′ away.  I nicknamed him, Winnie The Poop! …..for obvious reasons 🙂

    • Well, it could very well be. Black bears in this area are very territorial and usually return to feeding grounds every year. The fact that there was an abundance of apples and berries to eat followed by a “no show” in the spring makes me think he may not be back at all…for whatever reason. Hopefully he just found a better place to eat.
      Take care, Olga. ~ Dave
