There has been a bear roaming my neighborhood for the past week or so. Its a black bear. This is black bear country. I had heard tell of the bear being in our backyard and stealing our neighbor's trash, but hadn't had the 'pleasure' of seeing the thing for myself
I got my chance last night.
Strange noises began about 3:45 this morning. It was more or less light out by then. Sure enough, crouching behind a tree next to the picnic table was a black bear eating the shit out of a bag of trash. Boyfriend and I hung out on the back porch and watched the bear for ten minutes or so. He ate some trash, cleaned himself off, drank some water out of bucket that had collected rain on the downstairs neighbor's porch. Stared at us from the bottom of the steps, then he moseyed off down the path that leads out to the street
Like he owned the joint.
Garbage day should be interesting tomorrow.
