Default Black Bear--Named "Baby"

Shortly after turning down Forest Road, a large black shape emerged from some bushes and lumbered directly in front of my car. (This was not far from hand-lettered signs that read, " Slow Down--Children").

When he saw me as a risk factor, he floored-it and stumbled. I had already braked and steered in the opposite direction of his travel, but he disappeared momentarily under my fender. A close call, but there was no impact and he ran off eastbound--uninjured.

When I mentioned this to a Wolfeboro neighbor living nearby, she said, "I think that may have been 'Baby'...His Mom hangs around here, but we seldom see her".

While it's Brown Bears that have the reputation as North America's greatest killer, should Wolfeboro residents be so casual towards its cousin?

I mean, "Baby"?

The Black Bear lacks a clean record among humankind.
