This magnificent gentleman bear probably weighed 400 pounds. He walked down the road for nearly a mile. We followed his tracks in the morning, while he had the night all to himself. We never knew he was there - except in theory, because bears live in the forest - thanks to the bear-proof trash can at the cabin where we sometimes stay.
I doubt he gave us a thought, but we think of him often and wish him a wild, free, peaceful life.
