Bear with me on this one!
This was not Boo Boo the bear!
Good afternoon Norwich and Upper valley readers,
It sure is a hot one outside these days and it’s a little quiet out there at least until it starts raining again. This short story piece with photos was sent to me by Arthur Sauvigne, and might just grab your attention at least for a moment or two.
One of the photos is of a very large bear somewhere in Maine, and just to keep it local so to speak, Arthur has provided me with some photos of a very large bear that has been spotted in his neighborhood recently. Enjoy!
-Duffy-looking-up-at the tree- 1-6-2007 ( My question would be which one is Duffy? )
This was somewhere in Maine. The Largest recorded American black bear was 1100 pounds and 7'9" tall killed in New Brunswick, NJ.
And here is Art’s story as only Art can tell it, about a bear in his back yard in Lebanon NH.
I went into the woods to check my game camera. It was re -mounted 3 months ago on a power pole. See Editors Note: after this paragraph. I found the broken off strap mount on the pole and the camera some 10 yards away in weeds. Look at the pix captured while our "friend" tore the camera down. One shows claws pawing at the camera, another shows its mouth and the last one shows the bear standing up against the pole. The camera was mounted about 4 feet high...you get a shot of this bear's chest-armpit level.... this creature must be over 6 feet tall on its hind legs! This isn't Boo Boo. Several of our neighbors have been commenting on recently seeing a very large male black bear roaming around Sunset Rock Road.
Editors Note: Photos show a date stamp of 2/11/2017, however Art never reset the camera after moving the location and changing out the batteries.
I checked with Art on the actual date and was told it was Aug 10, 2023

And here is one of the Bears’ head with his mouth very close to the camera
And finally the bear standing tall against the pole.
