A “cabin neighbor” who owns a hunting/summer cabin about 1/2 mile from my farm took these photos a couple of weeks ago with a motion-activated camera he has set up behind his cabin.
The black bear is the state animal of West Virginia, but I’ve never seen one or evidence of one around here.
But there’s at least one now 1/2 mile from my farm! Not sure how I feel about that. It might be cool to see a bear, but it’s also a little creepy. Plus, they eat stuff. Like farm animals.
