Saturday, while we were at the cabin for the weekend, my husband went out to the garage and was surprised to find a bear just coming in with her two cubs. He closed the door and yelled "There's a bear!"
I hurried to the window to look, thinking she must be fairly far away and had no idea she was actually in our garage. My husband must have scared her or she didn't find the grilled hamburgers we had made for lunch and she started to leave, watching us very closely as she left. When she was far enough away, we all went outside to see for our own eyes, so grateful we were not part of the 3rd bear attack news story.
My son-in-law, Jarom took this picture - thanks Jarom. The pictures I took of the bears were much further away!
The day before we heard on the news of 2 bear attacks fairly close to where our cabin is. One was a mother bear and two cubs and was just a few miles from us. We are wondering if it wasn't the same bears.
I have lived in Idaho most of my life and been to West Yellowstone many times and have never seen a bear up close. I thought it would be fun to see one, but that was a little to close for me. Needless to say, we slept with the windows closed that night... Hope your summer is exciting, but not the "bear in your garage" kind of excitement, Bonnie
