The black bear experience has been enjoyable and I must admit, endearing. They are those rounded dark shapes that weave through the woods of greens and shades of brown simply going about life absorbed in the act of foraging for food, sleeping and with the female, nurturing her young. It's a private life except for interruption by man or another bear with territory issues.
What transpired on the easel has been what could become a story book bear in the future. I couldn't help but have fun with the sideways glances and that wonderful pear shaped muzzle.
Another black bear source that has been informative and enjoyable is http://www.americanbear.org/index.html. This site is also great for kids to view in that it provides clear and comprehensive facts and wonderful photos that are kept up to date.
