I was getting used to the deer walking through our driveway, sometimes I could hear their hoofs clicking on the cement as they crossed back onto the dirt. BUT last night I didn’t hear clicking I heard clumsy movement….that continued. We had a midnight stranger, a Very Large Black Bear in front of our house going through our garbage can (it was garbage night). Mixed with nervous excitement I ran from my bedroom and told the hubby. Both of us anxious and curious quietly, stepped outside onto our porch and watched this hungry bear just 20 ft from our front door.
I started to feel sorry for him, he didn’t look aggressive, but he needed to go, we’ve got a lot of kids in this neighborhood. Hubby started telling he needed to go, this Big Brown Bear stood up, looked at hubby saying he didn’t want to go. But my guy doesn’t stand down easy, even to a bear, the hubby gave out a LOUD Roar!! The Bear looked at him not sure for a moment, then went down on his front paws and slowly walked away. I’d never seen a bear that wasn’t behind bars. It was kinda cool!.
This is a picture I found of a Colorado Bear. I didn’t think to get my camera out last night to get a picture of our Midnight Stranger.
