The Alligator River Nat. Wildlife Refuge has one of the highest concentrations of black bear in the world, besides numbers they are the largest black bears in the world. A couple of years one bear harvested weighed in at 880 pounds, which is in line with Grizzly bears. So here is a shot from this morning (these are jpg's)-

Google Alligator River National Wildlife Refuge. the place is a treasure trove of critters besides the ubiquitous bears. It is extreme mainland eastern North Carolina, right before the bridge to Manteo Island (Elizabeth Dare, Croatan, Fort Raleigh, etc.), next bridge takes you to the OBX.
