Black Bear Prowling in Springvale

Tanya Hunter of Springvale had a close encounter with Ursus americanus on Tuesday, and has the video to prove it.
For more than a half hour the bear lounged around on Tanya Hunter's front lawn feeding on bird seed. At first she didn't notice the large creature. She was working in the yard when she turned and saw the bear just steps away from her.

She was still shaken when we spoke with her several hours later.
"I didn't know this bear was there, and that was very scary, until I got so close to him, it was just amazing and frightening at the same time," said Hunter. [Link]
