Last night at about 8:30 p.m. I heard something from the backyard and Dance (my dog) suddenly was very anxious to go out. I caught a glimpse of a black shape running to the bushes. Dance was barking in a very vicious way and then I saw the little Black Bear further back in the yard. He’s not too afraid and I had to yell at him to get him moving along.
The previous day he had discovered my garbage can where I store sunflower seeds for the birds. I had just put bungie cords on the cans to secure the lids. Those bears are strong – even the little ones – he had tried to get into the metal garbage can with the secured lid and he had managed to bend the lid slightly. The cover did not come off, but he had dragged the can out into the yard a bit. Things are getting exciting around here!!!
