What do bears eat?
Hopefully not the gardner! Yes, they are here in South Jersey....a momma with cub was sighted in Williamstown crossing 322 around 9:00am on Friday. This was confirmed by the local police who sent a patrol car to check it out and almost ran one over when it ran in front of his patrol car. DH was also told by another officer today that they believe there is a family of bear living in some state land right behind our property. Hopefully this situation does not end up like what is going on up in north Jersey. Those poor people can't even sit on their decks to enjoy their yard and garden without checking for bear first. Hopefully, they won't destroy all our hard work in the yard and garden and we can co-exist with no serious incidents. I know that this is not something I thought we would have to deal with when we moved to Monroe Township....all we wanted to do was have space for our horses, plant gardens and have more privacy. Thanks for listening.....hopefully, when I go out to check on the horses each night "Ben" (hopefully gentle ben) will not be hanging around looking for a snack.
