In the past 20 years I had one bear walk up and sniff my pregnant wife’s back side as she hung laundry.
She thought it was my old black lab from the corner of her eye.
The old lab was being pain she said kept getting right up to her and pushing her until the dog bolted and she noticed that other black thing was not the dog.
Poor old Molly was not a guard dog, did her best to alert mom .
Then there was the bear that would chase me and ministry of natural resources guy around house but would not actually go in the trap… ( fair to say we started all this by chasing the bear waving our hands and yelling trying to scare it off )
There was a moma bear ad cubs that would bring everyone else garbage to my place to eat.
This one bear was real quiet and I could not see him in the dark as I worked in my shop.
He followed me to my back door ( that the wife locked ) and watched me pound and yell to be let in.
There was the bear across the street trying to push in the picture window until the cops showed and shot it.
The bear that tried to crawl in the bathroom window a street over ( might be the same little bear )
The bear that charged me walking from my back yard to the mall across a wooded hill.
The good news is my brother has a way with bears that makes then very tasty lol.
