This is the smaller of at least two bears who have been in the area recently. After taking these pictures today, I chased this little guy away by hollering and throwing a few rocks at the wooden fence which enclosed the garbage can he was ransacking. He circled around the area and was back again in about ten minutes! These shots were taken two houses down the street from ours.
Last night at around ten-fifteen we were sitting on our deck with Sharon and Ed when we saw a much bigger bear silhouetted by a street lamp just north of our place. Sorry, no pictures of that one.
