Fuzzy Wuzzy

Regular readers may remember that about a month ago, I wrote an entry with photos of a mysterious critter that I thought might be a bear.

I'm happy to say that mystery has been solved:

That is a BEAR running through the alfalfa field!

I shot these pictures about 8:45 a.m. this morning (6/22/09. My mother-in-law called me and told me to get my camera and head to the hayfield and so I did.

She called it a cub but I don't think this is a cub. This is a full grown, if small bear.

It ventured across the road while I was shooting pictures so I hopped in the car to make sure I could stop traffic to keep it from getting hit. I felt protective since I am pretty sure my presence is the reason it ran across the street.

It vanished into the woods in front my house and I've not seen it again. I suspect it is still in the woods, though, hunkered down.

  2. Gosh, I hadn't thought of that. I suppose it could be!

  3. Those are wonderful pictures, Anita. I love the black bear against the green of the alfalfa field.

  4. He looks comfy in the alfalfa field. So glad you captured his photo and solved the mystery too.

    Kudos to your mother-in-law for calling you!
