Black Bear at Planter

Bear Zoom

This Black Bear  is a resident of the Mink Hills/Warner River watershed.

We have not seen a black bear on the property since 2016. Just when we believed they had succumbed to development and logging in the Minks, we got a night shot in April, 2019, taken with a Moultrie wildlife camera strapped to an apple tree on the far side of the meadow. The camera took a video clip, but our space is limited by our provider.

Young Bear

The bear at left looks like a young one, perhaps the offspring of one of the above. Those photos were taken between 2007-2009.

Fast forward to July, 2016 and meet our latest cub. There was a lapse of 2-3 years in bear sitings on the homestead until our first encounter below.
