Helicopters and a Big Black What?!?

I'm sure by now you're wondering what I'm talking about. Well, let me show you...



Black bear



A black bear was spotted a few miles from my house last Friday. It was shot with a dart, but got away, only to be seen a few more times over the weekend.

Yesterday morning when the boy and I got back from taking the husband and GG where they needed to go, I heard a helicopter. After a few minutes I noticed I still heard it. So we went outside to check things out. 45 minutes that thing circled the skies over our house! I wondered if the bear was close by because I hadn't heard about it being caught yet.

Real quick let me explain my 'hood. It's 1.5 square miles. Not big at all so you're crazy if you think I was going to leave my house! And we're about 10 minutes from downtown. In other words... NOT BEAR COUNTRY!!!!

The explanation of the bear is that it is young. Mama bear just set it free to learn how to live on it's own. It's probably not very dangerous being young, but still, a bear is a bear! I hope they catch it soon!





Until next time....

Oh wow, see that would be interesting and scary at the same time. I would love to see it from the other side of my window lol..

So, I take it you don't want to catch it and make it a family pet??? PETA, JK! Promise!

We live close to an air force base, so I probably wouldn't have been phased by a helicopter.

Ooh, that would be scary. Thankfully it was/is a bear and not some criminal on the loose.

However, if I saw a bear, baby or not, I would poop myself. ;-)

Well, that sounds interesting! No wonder your son was so captivated. The bear looks cute in the picture, but that's as close as I'd want to get. We had a helicopter going back and forth over our house one night with a spotlight, shining it in back yards. Creepy! I'm sure they weren't looking for a bear!!!
