I see the Rays,
Looking for me!
No, before you get excited I did *not* take this picture in our yard today. But not because I didn't have a black bear in my yard! We came home from the swim meet and Russ & I laid down for naps. (100 degree temps at the meet made for some tired & sunburned parents...) We hadn't been laying there even 5 minutes when there was someone POUNDING on our door and ringing the doorbell over & over. I thought it was the neighbor and was really irritated. Then I heard one of the kids open the door and my neighbor yelled "Is everyone in the house? There's a black bear running up the street!" Well that got me right out of bed!
It turns out that a bear had run out from between her house & the house on the other side, and then had gone down my driveway and into the woods while she was pounding on our door. She was afraid while she was checking on our kids that it was going to decide to come get her!
Russ said that he heard on the news that a black bear was seen in North Raleigh last week, so maybe this bear is trying to make his way to the mountains. I just hope it's not hanging out in my back yard!!!
