I haven't seen a bear in the wild, but I sure hope you do (assuming said bears are mild mannered).
I've seen full-grown black bears in my backyard. Does that count?
Once Larry and Debbie and I went on a hike in the Smokies. We heard something crashing through the woods. 2 bear cubs crossed the path. We didn't even realize (or I didn't) that that probably meant the mother was nearby. But Larry had a can of tuna, so maybe he could have offered it to her had she been angry with us. Tourists in the Smokies were always trying to feed bears from their cars--not so good for the bears and a little dangerous for the tourists (?)p.s. Mean Jean, Did the bear climb up your stone steps?
All right. I exaggerated. I just talked to Larry and he said it was only one bear. And that the bear looked skinny and that's why we thought it might be a youngster.
The bear has been here since the steps were built but I didn't see any evidence that it was on the steps. It did destroy our Droll Yankee Twirl-a-Squirrel feeder.
Hiking (alone, stupidly!) once in the Smokies I was heading down a mountain trail when two women were walking up. They warned me they thought they'd heard baby bears. I RAN all the way down.
I didn't realize that bears were seen so frequently in the South.You Southern ladies are so experienced!
