Reader Kirk Skadden writes:I live halfway up Windfall Ave. and wanted to let you all know that we had a bear on our back porch around 11:00 Sunday night. I heard something disturbing the trash cans by the side of the house and thought it was just the usual raccoons. But it alarmed our cat which ran over to our back screen door. A minute later I heard a low growl and new it wasn't the cat or even a large raccoon. I got up, turned on the light and saw the bear from a distance of about 12 feet. After it made eye contact with me, it turned and walked towards the back of our property and down an embankment towards the fire road that runs along Gooseberry Creek. I woke my wife up for her to see but by the time she reached the window it had vanished.
So we've updated the Bear Map, and will keep updating it as circumstances warrant!
