I was wondering around and saw a post about bears getting into bird feeders and it reminded me of this post Idid last year from the news. I just wish I could remeber who had the bears…. Ever worry about squirrels getting into the bird feeder? Well, look at this.
Good grief, what is that line made of?
Bear stuns Chuckey (TN) woman by banging on door, walking in
Johnson City Press ^ | June 16, 2006 | By Kristen Swing
Chuckey resident Rela Foshie was on the phone with her son-in-law Thursday afternoon when she heard an unexpected guest banging on her back door.
With a rash of bear sightings in her neighborhood throughout the last two weeks, it didn’t take long for Foshie to realize that her guest was of the non-human variety.
“It beat on my door,” said Foshie, who estimated that her intruder was somewhere between 300 and 400 pounds. “It banged and scared the s— out of me to be honest.”
For at least the second time in as many weeks, the black bear, apparently in search of a tasty meal, made its way onto the back porch of Foshie’s home located on the aptly named Bearfield Road. But this time, the bear didn’t stop at the porch.
“It came in the back door. I don’t know how it got the door opened, but it did,” Foshie said. “He was in the hallway where the dog food was.”
