There are bears in Crozet … they are part of the charm of living here (we are at the base of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive/Shenandoah National Park, after all)
… and seemingly more bears are making their presence known now that it’s Bear Awareness Week (who knew?)
– Thanks, Wildlife Center of Virginia.
– For fun, follow the Crozet Bear.
– More bears seen around Crozet this year because of the Shenandoah National Park fire?
Update 25 May 2016:
“This big bad bear showed up on Monday, May 23, at 12 minutes after 11 p.m. at my home in Brookwood. As you can see, this is a very large bear when compared to the height and size of our trash hamper. Certainly not one you would want to confront one-on-one. He/she did not attack the trash hamper this time because there was no food in it. From his/her direction of travel, he/she came from the woods behind our house and headed next door to continue the quest for food. (Photo by Jim Crosby)
Please be alert because this was reasonably early evening and before midnight.”
