Last Tuesday, a bear was in my backyard! I got home at about 10:00 p.m. and let my dog, Boo, out for a run. He immediately started sniffing the front walkway and patio. I turned on the patio lights and saw HUGE bear paw prints coming from the pond to my front porch.
We've had a bear in the neighborhood for the past few years, but what worried me was that it must have been at my house prior to 10:00 p.m., not the usual middle-of-the-night sightings.
By the way, this is the second time the bear has been at my house. Last year, a neighbor spotted him on my front lawn at about 1:30 a.m.
I thought of nicknaming him Boo-Boo but thought my dog would get confused!
