Encounter

When my dogs have something tree’d or cornered, they make a sound that is unique and from the same spot for long times. It gets annoying and I usually have to go out and pull them away from a possum or a raccoon. So a few nights ago, they were going on and on and on, and I finally went out to stop it. We throw garbage bags in the pickup until it’s full and then take a trip to the dumpsters to empty the truck. So, with only the light from my cell phone….I went out, noticing a bit of garbage on the ground. On the other side of the truck is a bank that goes up at about a 45 degree angle and has trees and shrubs on it. There was something dark behind a tree that was about a foot in diameter and there were some leaves in the way…so stooping down I got within about 5-6 ft when I saw a large area of black fur with hairs about 3 inches long. Damn!! A BEAR! I backed out very slowly and then hauled ass to the house for my gun…and a flashlight. When I went back, it was gone. I am still on a high from it!

    Sounds like an interesting encounter. They’re often attracted by garbage. Now if it had been me, I’d probably grabbed a camera.
