love2read Posted June 3, 2009 Share Posted June 3, 2009 We spotted a black bear walking along the road last night. I've known for years they were around and while they are more common about 5 miles away by a lake, it seems that one of our neighbors spots one every year or two. We are surrounded by woods although our home and most of those on this street are not built in the woods. I am always so upset when one is spotted because it means everyone will stay inside for days and it will be weeks before I let the children go outside to play in the yard alone. My neighbors don't have this same kind of fear and think I'm over reacting. Can I hear from some of you that have bears in your woods and tell me how you deal with that knowledge? I don't know how pioneer mother's dealth with the knowledge of mountain lions and brown bears right outside their doors. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
