    My one and only face to face with a black bear was while hunting in West Virginia. I was sitting on a ledge beside a grove of heavy foliage trees. I heard something moving towards me, I was expecting the large buck of my dreams when a large black bear exited maybe 25 feet in front of me. I brought my rifle up to a ready and not much happened. I looked at bear and bear looked at me. Bear stood up on hind legs and sniffed before dropping down and sauntering over to the river. In most cases a black bear will avoid human contact at all cost.

    . Thinking the bear was happy to get away from there. Like most black bears he (or she) wanted nothing to do with humans. :)

    The comment of the victim of the bear attack reminds me of what the left is doing right now with gun policies etc. trying to talk your attacker into not attacking you, but your attacker is hellbent on killing you. no amount of talk or rules etc going to stop said attacker.

    I wish there was a way to get the left to see this example of unreasonableness and draw the connection with what they are trying to do. where the bear is the person who is hell bent on killing. make a law that bear can't bite you make a law that bear can't claw you etc. make a law that says wild bears can only live in cage etc

    Maybe then they will see the unreasonableness of their actions?

    except when cubs are around. See cubs look for mother and vacate area ASAP. encountered Wild black bears 3 different times in my conservation work. One of those being pair of cubs that climbed up a tree near us. We hightailed for the car on that one, while watching for momma.

    Well yeah, that is pretty much true of all bears and a host of other animals when it comes to their young, including humans. :)

    I saw a bear once - eating garbage on the edge of a dump in Fayetteville, NC. Only bear I've ever seen outside of a zoo or an exhibition cage.
