    awesome....i love bears, despite being somewhat scared of them....

    hiking with the family in montana when i was 4 or 5 and lo and behold we see these two cubs....i said oh looooook, cute....or something like that....my dad said, walk away slowly....NOW.....but why daddy.....momma bear came racing down the hill and all i remember after that is being dragged by my mother to safety....

    none of were hurt, my dad stayed behind made all sorts of noises and scared the bear off.....

    I have never really noticed how much bear snouts resemble pig snouts till I viewed these pictures! Amazing.

    Looks like a big ol' puppy dog but I bet he'd tear you up given the chance.

    Stromboli you must be in the southeast?

    They have pig tendencies...and a skinned bear looks remarkably like a human.

    Bears are scary, and black bears are mean s.o.b.s when the mood takes them.

    I was reading the CUJ July edition just a few minutes (the Confederated Umatilla Journal, Indian paper out of the Umatilla Indian Reservation) and they actually had a photo of a wolverine they'd caught using a motion-activated camera trap. A WOLVERINE. Yikes.

    It has to be either parasites or fungal.
