Look what I saw today...

Not the best photo but it was taken from my car with an iPhone. I saw this giant black bear slowly crossing the road about 5 minutes from my house today. As cars approached, he/she turned around and ran into the bushes. There were no cars behind me so I stopped and there he was, standing by the tree no more than 20' from my vehicle. I rolled down the window and took this!
Wow! Not a sight you see everyday!! Wonderfully captured!! Very cool car capture too!!

@bkbinthecity Bears and cougars are all around but people don't see them that often. I did see a bear last summer while riding my bike on a nearby trail - I got off it quick and took the 'roads' home and another one the summer before while hiking in a trail about 20 minutes from home. I'm a bit of wimp and tend to stick to the roads to walk and ride during bear season. Cougars have been an issue this year. One was just shot in a residential neighbourhood. Two others were spotted by some kids next to the skate park five minutes walk from my parent's house. Here's an article (with a video within it): https://www.campbellrivermirror.com/news/cougar-shot-and-killed-in-campbell-river/

I like that shot of the animal included in her global nature environment. She is clearly intrigued by the human presence.

Lovely capture, but I cannot get my head around killing animals because they "trespass" into residential areas. Wasn't there an option to tranquilize and relocate?
September 14th, 2019  
Such an amazing sight to see!
September 16th, 2019  
Must be scary...
