So was walking the pups the other day, and had a little run in with a Bear. We turned a corner on the trail and there was Yogi about 100 yards off walking our way. It was a black bear and the dogs must have made him uneasy with all the barking and stuff ( I love that I have 3 big dogs smile.gif ) and he turned around in the opposite direction thank god... as did I and ran like a mad women back to the truck and home. Now I had my camera, but common sense, and well, just plain fear told me that a photo op just didn't seem like the best idea at that moment laugh.gif

A friend of mine was driving up the new section of highway the other day, in his little Honda Civic hatchback, and ran into Yogi also. However he figured he'd take the photo op.

I think he was trying to hitch a ride smile.gif

Came in for a closer look

Yes Yogi is on the hood of the car. You can see the paw print on the windshield... CRAZY!!!

"Pardon me, but do you have any Grey Poupon?"

A little too close for comfort for me but thought you guys would get a kick out of the pics. Lately around here the bears are everywhere. Wildlife officers have had to tranquilize 4 and remove them from town. Between the wolf sightings and all the bears I think I'll just sit at home and play guitar LOL!!!

See Bondy, I told ya I pretty much lived in the woods smile.gif

Wow, what an awesome story & pics.

Bears are wonderful animals, but they are so scarce where I live. They are protected, but truth is it's extreamly unlikely to encounter one in person even when venturing in the woods. Plus they are smaller.

Wow! Lucky for you you have puppies to take care of you rok! biggrin.gif I wouldn't mind meeting with the bear when he is in a good mood and not hungry, but getting to close to them in natural surrounding is a little too much experience biggrin.gif Pictures are awesome - thanks! smile.gif))
