500 Pound Bear Spotted Near Home in the ADKS – What Would You Do?
A woman who lives in the Adirondack region of Upstate NY says she set up a trail cam in her front yard to catch a deer that'd been eating her flowers, but what she ended up seeing on camera shocked her - and many others who have seen big bears before, but nothing quite like this.
I can't get enough when it comes to wildlife images, videos, trail cams - all that good stuff. But since I'm kind of a 'city guy', most of the wildlife observations I get to experience, are usually through pics and videos of things I see on the internet and interesting Facebook groups.
One of my favorite Facebook groups is called Wildlife and Nature Lovers of Upstate New York. On this page, people from all over Upstate NY share in their interest in wildlife and nature through photos, paintings, drawings, writings, recommendations, trail info, maps, links to articles, and websites.
On Monday, a woman who says she lives up in the Adirondacks, added a photo to that Wildlife Facebook group of an enormous black bear, foraging for food on her front lawn.
Carolin Harpp wrote that she witnessed the colossal carnivore on a trail cam she set up on her property to try and spot something else - much smaller in size, writing, "Trail cam (was) set up on (the) front lawn to catch deer, who was eating my flowers, instead we caught this fella, 4 foot from my living room window."
Here's the fella that Harpp is referring to, a massive black bear that some estimated weights between 450-500 pounds - and while he's looking for a tasty snack, he certainly doesn't look like he's been without food - but I'm not about to argue with him!
