That's at least a 400lb bear... probably more. A big male getting fat on people's trash, most likely. Be careful, they can be unpredictable and quite dangerous. (Look who's asking you to be careful...LOL!)

The wolf is NEAT! We haven't seen wolves around here in ages. The only things we have are bobcats and even the big one I saw in Paddy's Run the other year couldn't match a wolf. Very cool!

The bears are very bold here. I won't get near one, believe me. I don't think Glen would have gone out there to take that photo if he hadn't been standing on the side porch. But who knows, men can be fools. :) There have been very few reports of attacks by black bears in our area, although there are so many. But most people are not stupid and keep their distance. Last summer I was sitting in the patio with Angelo, our cat that died last year, and Glen called me from the house, "Linda, don't move but look up, to your left." There was a bear, in the next yard, heading to the corner of our lots, to go up the hill, probably. "What should I do?" I hissed. "Get up slowly and come inside." I picked up poor old Angelo as quietly as I could and hot footed it in through the side porch door. Glen said it didn't even look at me. They are that used to being around people.

I hope you can see a wolf one day. Me, too. I've only seen them in zoos or stuffed in glass cases.
