Yep, we have a young black bear in the neighborhood. He has been roaming around all the homes and getting in the trash. Betsy our Shepherd hasn't seen him yet. But the neighbor behind us saw the bear today while she was hanging her wash in the line. I guess Betsy was sleeping...Our yard is compleately fenced so maybe the bear won't bother us. We will see. the bear has been in the neighborhood for about a month.
