This Black Bear showed up on our property at 1 PM today. And just a few days ago, a 62-year-old woman was killed by one on an island in Ontario waters, just 4.5 miles from our house! That one was dispatched.
However, I still dusted off the .357 magnum while taking these full-frame photos from about 20 yards. And I had one hand on the door knob as well! It was a poor blueberry crop this year, so it was no doubt here looking for acorns.
