    My youngest brother naively thinks he could scare away a bear which is a slightly worrying attitude given that the local bear population sometimes likes to take a stroll right across our cropland. Interestingly there have been more attacks on humans by moose than by bears during the last 3 years in this area.
    Yes, it’s gotten a lot of play here in the States. She says it was all instinct and adrenaline. The bear was starting to pick up her little dog and probably would have kill it and she wasn’t having any of that. If you look closely, the big dog was pretty agile but still ended up getting clawed on the snout and went running away after that. Fortunately no one was hurt. Great videos and good to know! Luckily, there aren’t too many bears in my area. We just have to worry about alligators, sharks and poisonous snakes.

    Black bear escapes wildlife refuge in New York

    June 25 (UPI) -- A wildlife refuge in New York is asking the public to keep a lookout for a "completely harmless" black bear that tunneled out of her enclosure.

    The Adirondack Wildlife Refuge in Wilmington said in a Facebook post that the 4 1/2-year-old black bear, named Ahote, escaped Thursday morning by digging her way out of her enclosure.

    The refuge said the bear is "completely harmless," but asked members of the public not to attempt to approach the animal, as she would be likely to flee from strangers.

    The post said officials are concerned someone might panic and shoot the bear.

    Ahote and Luvey, the other black bear sow in residence at the facility, previously escaped in 2019 and were at large for two weeks before being captured.

    The refuge's state and federal permits were revoked in 2020 after environmental officials determined there were multiple violations of state and federal laws governing such facilities.

    There is a bear in the foothills west of #Boulder that has this chicken feeder stuck around its head and neck. If you see it, please call 303-291-7227. Wildlife officers would like to remove that bucket.
