Hello, it is becoming more and more common bears more or less in the cities as there in the street
That's common around here, but I live in the woods.
Black bear are shy. They won't usually get aggressive unless challenged or protecting cubs.
A few days ago I had a bear right near my front door. Looking for bird feeders to eat the seeds. I banged on the door to shoo it away and next day took down the bird feeders --- what was left of them. And I sprayed ammonia around the perimeter to deter her from coming back.
Je pense que t'a raison --- we humans have encroached on their territory so much that we are seeing more in our midst.
I hear Grizzlies are being reintroduced in the northwest of this continent, I forget exactly where.
Uncle Ferd says, "Hmmm...
... musta been one o' dem...
... French bears."
Pogo, it must be scary to see a bear nearby and it is true that it happens more often near the forest especially when we go camping they are looking for food but the bear is a carnivore too, must be careful not to to become their meal
It is a well coated bear un gros n'ours n'ours as they say in French
And they can run faster than we can.
We have an old joke here. Two campers are out in the woods when they notice a bear in the distance, coming toward them. They both run (which is not a wise thing to do with a bear). The older camper says "do you think we can outrun that bear? The younger camper says "I don't need to outrun that bear I only need to outrun YOU".
It is a good one Ha! or you have to be a good climber and as high as you can in the tree
A other one...The mama bear with her babies at Yellowstone in the street with tourists
You can see in the body language those bears are frolicking, not being aggressive. The people running away, maybe a natural reflex, are treating it the wrong way. The man with the camera toward the end has the right idea -- he stands tall and the bear retreats.
Bears can climb trees faster than humans, probably not as high, though.
