Bears! Free to a good home!
Since moving to our home at the foot of the mountains, four years ago, I've learned to contend with the wild life, in my garden. But nothing prepared me for our new visitor, last week! A 300 pound black bear!
We've heard stories of bears frequenting our wooded neighborhood. They visit, looking for easy food sources. Like my bird feeders!
The Pennsylvania Game Commission placed a bear trap in my yard. Luckily, after only eight hours, the bear was trapped, safely. I understand he was going receive a new home in nearby Somerset County. Turn about is fare play, as nuisance bears from Somerset are relocated here, in Fayette County.
The Wildlife Control Officer "reassured" me, there's more where that one came from! I don't need to explain, why I've been constantly looking over my shoulder as I go about my garden work!
