Chisos Mountain Black Bear

Spotted this (I’m guessing juvenile) Black Bear in Big Bend a few weeks ago… luckily I had quick access to a long lens and good camera and was able to get this shot.

  1. Whoa!
    That’s WILD, Mr. B!

  2. Very cool.

  3. Very nice shot. Especially since the police had to shoot a black bear in the City of Burlington near to my neck of the woods just a couple days ago.

    At lot of people are really upset about the killing, even though they understand the reason behind it.

    The Halton Region Police have stated that the provincial body that could have tranquilized the bear and relocate it do not have enough staff that they could be there in time as the bear was within 300ft of a residential area and clearly approaching a house. The police, who don’t have tranqs, had to kill the animal for public safety.
