Seen him directly across the street earlier then it circled around and crossed the street then turned back around and crossed again where this shot was taken by a neighbor. about a second after it gets into the patch of woods a doe comes running across only to come to a skidding halt once she seen the bear. That aint even to mention the Buck on the back lawn first thing when I woke up.

Damn Bears !! Evil or Very Mad

When I lived across the road, we had one in our trash every night, so I finally ran my horses hotwire around the house, and covered the trash bin, that next morning there were claw marks in the ground where he musta jumped after gettin zapped LOL,, so then , he started climbin the fence, and destroyed a few bird feeders, so I had to run a wire around the whole place.
SO then, he quits us, but he gets our neighbors trash every night, and what does he do, he drags the neighbors trash to our yard , to tear into it...
Damn Bears !

LOL, sorry i lost it there. LOL

Thats pretty cool, sorta, i guess.. Oh, one night, my girlfriend was hollerin out the front door, I thought she was yellin at a dog, but oh no, mr bear just stood there, on our front porch lookin at her, while she yelled... it took me hollerin and yellin and bangin on the walls and door to get him to leave.

Bears that get used to people, and get used to peoples dogs, are problems in my book.

Oh Ive got a few more "Damn Bear" stories, so I better back out . before I get started Rolling Eyes

Bears are beyond a problem in NJ. I have to say it is all peoples faults, they take all the wooded land they can to build condos ,sub divisions ect and the bears have nowhere to go, plus there is some people that feed them on purpose, then more that do not do anything to protect their garbage ( I build a box with heavy wood doors and locks) of course since ther are hundred of Dunkin donuts around that throws out old donuts, bagels ect they get into their dumpsters that are unprotected.


Then there is the other side where the anti hunters kept hunting them illegal for so long that they have no fear of humans because they was not hunted. I know of cases where they walk right up to a cook out plop down like a huge dog waiting for scraps. Don't even get me started on Yotes here, they have been known to attack people and even children time to time.


Whenever a bear is handled by the NJF&G they tag them with metal bands in their ears, this one had none even though they had been after it for I know 6 years. So I know it is a smart one, hopefully it comes from the state land nearby and I can find out exactly where it comes from so I can bust it!


In this ones credit it is afraid of people, everytime it seen a person it hauled tail elsewhere in the neighborhood, until it finally headed out

Daaa bear....

It's kind of neat to have one visit the neighborhood like that. Unfortunately people just have to feed them when they come around. Once trash cans and handouts become a regular part of their feeding schedule, they become a niusance. Ranger Rick has to come and give 'em the dart gun treatment.

I remember once on a trip to Yosemite, we came back to the camp and our entire cooler and boxes of food were strewn all over the camp. Sans food. After that we had to take the food with us for the day.

Daaaa bears....

Another thing I should mention is the picture does this bear no justice. I would make a guesstiment that it was about 3 ft tall at its front shoulders and about 450 lbs, maybe more. I do know its rump was a little higher than the back of the toyota that is in the pic.It has been coming to the neighborhood once every 2 years or so I always said my wife was crazy because I never seen it and was a min or so late to seeing it. Guess I can't tell her she has lost her mind anymore Laughing I do have to admit it was one of the coolest things I ever seen and beautiful even with all it's power. It's coat had such a shiny silken look that when the sun hit it certain ways that it looked blue.


The only thing that I seen that even touched the pure awsomeness of this was when I was hunting and witnesses a peregrin falcon go into a dive and snatch a squirrel in mid jump from one tree to another. I guess I am pretty lucky on the things and creatures I see.

Damn, that's a healthy looking blackie.

We just had one wander into our city last week. Caused quite a stir. They called down some NF Officers from the Ozark NF, they darted him, but he passed out in the crook of a tree in someone's back yard. So they got an inflatable bounce house, inflated it under him, and the local fire department blasted him out of the tree with a high pressure hose. They captured him and "escorted" him back to the Ozarks from whence he came.

Pretty rare to see one this far out of the mountains. Now cayoties, I have two packs fighting for territory in my neighborhood. Haven't seen an outside cat in a couple of years now! affraid
