For a while now, we’ve had bear sightings close to our house. Not especially close, but close enough to take notice. (Say, withint a mile.) However, yesterday on my way to work I found this huge bear (HUGE!) crossing the street about a tenth of a mile from our house. It picked up its pace as my car approached, but didn’t seem overly concerned to run away. It ended up in a field looking back over its shoulder at my car.

There is a huge corn field next to our house. I’m wondering how long it will take for the bear to find it. I just hope it doesn’t start desiring chickens and goats next.
