This one looks like a juvenile orphan. Notice the possible attack marks on its rump. Cute bugger , but dangerous. I live in bear country...

Good point.
And you're right those bears can be dangerous.
I'll be interested to know if he leaves on his own or continues to return in search of food.
Often Parks and Wildlife must capture and relocate them.
Good Luck and be careful.

Endgame... chase bear.

I hit it with 2 small rocks and yelled loud. It ran. I chased it. 20 minutes later it doubled back and returned. I laid in waiting and jumped out with a broom and screamed.

Man did it high-tail it the second time. This bear does not like me. :rasta:

Mama could be around. Best thing I can do is leave no food outside. That means no more random dumping of wetspotted grain etc. We try to be very bear aware about garbage etc.

Unfortunately the conservation officers will usually kill a bear like this. Its unmovable because if they do move it an adult male will likely seek it out and kill it on sight. Such is the way of nature. They might move it anyways...

I will call though if it returns many more times. My bet is I here a big "kaboom" from the neighbours soon. :eusa_snoo

Since I choose to live in the heart of bear territory i've got to share the space.

Just be careful with the situation man. I tried to find this link but cant, anyhow a family came back to there house were a bear had broken in, and was still in there trashing the place when they got home. They though someone broke in not knowing it was a bear, and went into the house. Noone died or anything just the point. So just be careful man. Id call animal control to get the bear outta there so he dont come back.

unless you live in a city that forbids firearm use and killing wild bears within its limits.
