Our Neighbourhood Bear

2022 July 23

I was sitting in the living room, minding my own business when I looked up to see this guy on the other side of the window. I grabbed my camera and went outside to confront him -- no time to worry about camera settings.

He was disconcertingly bold. When I told him to vamoose, he would back off a few feet and then return. But then he heard some children out on the turnaround and that scared him away.
