Bear Facts

This incident was reported by:

 Sharon Hill 1127 Lakeshore Dr North.

At 3:00 a.m. this morning, June 22, 2012, we had an unwelcome visitor. A very large
bear was leaning in our screened porch. He/she ripped the screening
on our porch and grabbed the garbage can...took it up into the woods and
found there wasn't much in there... came back a second time and we
managed to scare him off with the dog, lights and banging pots and pans
together...he started to go off but turned around and decided he needed
to look further. He started to walk up the side of the house and
suddenly changed his mind and disappeared into the dark again. I think
he was going for the barbeque so I ran out and removed the grills (we
had barbequed dinner last night). I plunged them into a sink of water
with lots of soap and vinegar and hoped he wouldn't smell them. We
closed all the windows in the house and tried to encourage our dog to
bark, but I think she was scared silly too. The important thing is that
this bear does not scare easily and in the 9 years we have lived here
this is the first such occurrence. Is it coincidence or is it because
as of 1 month ago we are down to 1 dog? We also realized that the only
real 'noise maker' we had was the air horn in the boat and there was no
way we were going out for that. I think we'll buy one for the house
now.

Take care everyone.

He was back on Sunday night. He/She took out most of the garbage containers on the right hand side of the lake. He/she is about 7 feet tall and brown. Do not get close to a hungry bear.

Sounds like a world record black bear if it is 7 feet tall...

Time for some bear repellant or better yet a 30.06

How can you tell the difference between a hungry and non hungry bear? I want to let my kids know which bears they can get close to.

Hungry Bears don't purr. So it ok to pet a purring one. Better yet the kids might be able to get closer to the bear if you covered them in peanut butter and honey.
