Black Bear Sighting in Manzanita

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
May 5th at 3am there was a black bear trying to get to our bird feeder (small seeds and sunflower in the shell). The bear was maybe 300 lbs, probably a female, and roaming the golf course area near the 3rd tee. Looks similar to one near the 8th green in a picture I saw back in the fall. Last year was terrible for berries the bears depend on so this one may have adjusted to living in the area to take advantage of garbage cans and bird feeders (and maybe the occasional pic-a-nic basket 😉
