Allow myself to introduce myself. I ain't skeeered!Exactly. A bear would walk thru most any human.
That was hilarious Mick!
Shoot that bear in the face!Friends put story on FB , their house does abbut a large forested area but is not remote by any means. Cooking dinner (hot weather windows open) ... They notice a large Bear coming up on the deck smelling dinner. She shut and locked the sliding door , the Bear came up and tried to slide the door open ! ... Wonder what would have happened if the door wasn't locked.
This. I've forgotten more bear encounters than I can remember. Never once have I felt threatened. As a teenager I changed irrigation in corn fields every summer. People would come out to see the bears, they were everywhere. Not once did one ever so much as threaten me. I was armed with......nothing.I've encountered quite a few black bears in different situations and never saw them do anything but run as fast as they could! This happened here recently though
