haha. a bear sounds pretty harmless. i hope they find it, though. and that a civilian doesn’t get caught up with it or hurt or even kill it.

we had a moose on the grounds of my high school once. they wouldn’t let anyone in or out, and they made everyone move away from the windows. for a moose. we were all like, “… k.”

Holy crap! I dunno who I’d be more nervous for, the people or the bear. My parents live up in the woods, they see ’em sometimes. That’s why they don’t keep garbage outside – draws the bears. 

My aunt got sort of… pursued… by one once in her front yard (she lives in the only other house for a mile around by my parents). She just got in her car and got low and sat there until it went away.

lol. its very hard to loose something that big… i also agree with you– loca law enforcement is not making me feel safe if they cant find or catch the thing

Bears give us the heeby-jeebys in our family. Which is ironic really since only one of us have actually seen one in the flesh. Or should that be fur? I haven’t forgotten my eldest son going on his epic voyage to the US and all of us laughingly saying “Watch Out For The Bears! Like nobody likes being chased out of the woods with a Bear behind! Ha-ha!”. He’d been in the Northwest for precisely 1 day when he had a safe, but far too close for comfort encounter with a bear.

So keep safe, OP and here’s hoping for a swift capture.

@Nona99:  Well then thats the norm around here where I live it was two weeks ago I was driving to work and almost ran over a baby bear in the road. It was pretty cool to see. Hopefully it gets back home soon.

Got to admit that I, too, am baffled as to how you just mislay a bear.

@Nona99:  We just had one in downtown Orlando about a month ago.  I had to google the address to make sure it wasn’t close to our apartment.  They sneak into the city at night.  Thankfully I haven’t yet had the privilege of seeing one in real life in the 10 years I have lived here.

Yeah you think they would be good at finding a BEAR! But my aunt lives in Raton, NM and they had like an infestation of bears one or two summers ago.  They would go up and down the alleys breaking in to dumpsters.  We were driving to her house from dinner one night and saw 2 huge bears in town.  It was pretty freaky!  But ANYWAYS I hope they find your bear soon, keep the furbabies inside tonight 🙂
