We have a problem with Black Bears in Timmins, this year.
Seems every area of town has its own bear, some areas have more than one.
We have a big male and also a female and her two cubs at the camp, roam around at nite, mostly
they aren't dangerous unless provoked, it seems, so not a major problem if people would be more bear wise, clean barbecues, no garbage left out, no birdfeeders.
The blue berry crops are terrible this year, is one reason why they are hungry and coming into town
searching for food, sad really.
Here are a few shots that I took the other evening around 10: not great pics due to lighting, but I was glad to get them, he is up a neighbors tree, the cops were called and so I am told, it was tranquilized and removed.
