No Lions or Tigers, but---Oh my!

We keep game cameras up on our property in Western North Carolina. It's fun to see the various wildlife that live in the area and visit the property. We have captured pictures of turkey, deer, and raccoons. I know there are coyotes in the area, but they stayed away from the camera lenses.

Black bears live on the mountain. Our neighbors have reported seeing a 'baby' black bear, so we knew we had a chance to capture one on the game camera. This does not look like a baby to me! The camera uses an infrared flash to take pictures in the dark so the animals do not see a white flash. That also means the picture is black and white.

They visited 3 nights in a row.

Our neighbors feed the raccoons which is why there are now bears in the area. They are not happy about the bears visiting. We pointed out if they stop feeding the raccoons, the bears might stop coming. They said they would continue to feed the raccoons.
