I think it’s a privilege because I have not seen even half of them. We have to understand who came before and we must give them the respect and space. Adam Gormely reasonably thinks and knows that these animals rather than be hunted we have to save and take care.

That being said – am I remembering wrong, or wasn’t a baby taken out of a stroller and killed by a black bear in New York State, right near the NJ line, a few years ago? As I recall, the mother had left the baby outside in the front yard while she ducked inside to get something. I sure hope I am remembering wrong!

And yes, Amy, this is Joy whom you knew in elementary school! 😉

I wish we saw wildlife like that. It makes sense that they decided to do nothing. Let the bear alone and use common sense by not approaching them, right? Isn’t that the rule? I’ve heard moose are pretty darn big, good luck to your son on that spotting!

One of the greatest problems for bears across the United States is the easy access to garbage at rural developments, landfills and campgrounds. We still carry primal fears of larger animals like Wolves, Coyotes, Bears and the occasional Fox, but we think nothing of hitting the interstate at 85 MPH with one hand on a cell phone. Statistically I think our chances of getting hurt by a wild animal are pretty minimal.
You should take your son up to Baxter State park to see some Moose, they are hard to miss there. The enormous “park” is a fine example of a political legacy that has really endured
