Adorable Black Bear Just Strolling Across a Merrimack Front Yard
In the “I can’t believe it” files, WMUR9 has video of an adorable black bear just strolling across a Merrimack, New Hampshire, lawn in front of a lovely front porch replete with pumpkins all dolled up for Halloween.
Well, I guess I can believe because this IS New Hampshire, and we DO have a lot of black bears.
WMUR9 reports they are getting the last of their winter fat stores built up before they head into hibernation.
I suppose there is not enough fat in a pumpkin to tempt a black bear.
This video does serve as a warning for residents to be on guard and be aware of their surroundings. If you spot a bear, do not get close to it. Do not approach it and under no circumstances should you attempt to feed them.
It would be a good idea to invest in a bear proof trash can. Trash can be an attractive nuisance and bring black bears to your home for scraps so keep your trash locked up.
I guess your porch pumpkins are safe from bears.
