Bear stuns Chuckey (TN) woman by banging on door, walking in

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.”

Baby animals

So being a picture freak I have people always sending me something. For some reason I have gotten a bunch of pictures of deer. Here’s a few for you.
 
This is from an email from a client. I don’t know who Mark is but I’m glad he didn’t hit the poor baby.
 

A very eventful day around here… A once in many lifetimes experience!
Mark saw this lil’ feller run out in front of a car, thought it was a lost baby goat. Stopped to get it, and WOW. A real Albino Whitetail Deer. Just hours old, but doing fine. No Momma deer around. Another car nearly hit it in front of Mark…

Well,, he is THE neatest thing any of us ever saw. And such a ‘freak of nature’, that only 1 in more than a million are even born. He took his bottle of food, followed us around the house, doing great. So, we called the Zoo & Fossil Rim, who were both interested, but we’re going to send him to a Rehab farm. Maybe he will make it in captivity somewhere and be appreciated. So rare… Sure wanted to keep him tho. but, not the thing to do. And not LEGAL either ; But, here are a couple of pix to show ya. He was snow white, pink eyes, ears, nose and hooves. Kids called him POWDER. He was SO small. That is my shoe lying beside him… WOW..how cool is that?? 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 

A lady found the fawn under her step (they think the doe might have been hit by a car) … her Ridge Back dog is helping look after it. The family named the fawn Bella. Once she has regained her strength (she was not in good shape when the family found her) they are going to send her to some friends who (in the past) raised two orphan deer and released them to the wild. Right now she is being bottle fed. Their dog (Hogan) has basically taken over. The fawn even shares his bed.

Fun Photos

One part of my job is to do graphic presentations for my boss who speaks nationally (going to New Hampshire now). I have to say it is one of the best parts of my job. I spend time (probably too much) searching the web for photos to represent ideas. It is great fun and even this blog is part of my "research". Needless to say I have many people sending me emails with photos which I have collected over the years. So I have decided that I will start sharing them here. Send me your favorites.
