Nice looking bear. Is it common for them to b that close to the house or is food scarce up there?

It’s pretty common around here from May_October. We get the brown/grizzlies also.

You can’t leave any garbage or food out side at all.

When I grew up in MO, there was never a mention that there might be a bear anywhere in the state. Now, it seems highly likely that one will grace my porch sooner than later. Somebody killed one just a few miles away last year and another has been seen. I don’t think I have to worry about brown bears anytime soon though.

What you going to do. They are protected and the tree hugers say we have to learn to co-exist with the bears.

I killed this fella in Ontario in 2010. The bear on ur porch looks bigger than mine.
I too would b nervous with all those bears around. I’d b afraid that I’d not b paying attention one day An one would sneak up on me There are some black bear in southern Ohio near me but closest I’ve heard of one is around 30miles away

Some 410 or 20ga bird shot in the butt might teach them to b skittish around the house.

Ever tried an electric fence, those damn tree huggers really hate trying to climb over them! ;-)

A semi truck hit and killed a black bear and one of it’s cubs about 10 years ago in west KY. I was right behind him when it happened. We were in an area called Land between the lakes, it’s between Kentucky and Barkley lakes. We were “informed” by the KY state police and the KY game wardens service that what happened didn’t, and there are no Bears in western KY. I don’t know about the truck driver, but I told everyone anyway. ;-)
