We saw black bear in my grandparents backyard.
We saw the bear about ten feet away. We ran. Than we ate lunch.O ur parents thought we were crazy. We took our bionoculars and went to prove them wrong. We went about quarter of the way down to invesagate. At first my friend didn't see it. But then she saw it. We went to do some recerch. It paid of. My mom belived us!

Never seen them myself, but I do know that a lot of people in my area have seen black bears. I don't know why people think it isn't possible. The area has perfect conditions for them.

A 200 male black bear tore up my 12x12 heavy duty chain metal fence. He has been eating my ducks and chickens. He tried to rip off the roof of my Amish made chicken house. He left muddy paw prints all over the roof. Saw him and then he took off! Game warren was called and said there is a female and 2 cubs about 2 miles away. They have 10 bears with radio collars but have left Ohio and they are in WV. He said they are protected by law and we could not shoot him. This male and female do not have collars. He said we could not call the radio or tv stations. Don't we have the right to protect our animals and ourselves from bears! Yes they are in Ohio!!!
