My brother Chris lives on the edge of the Everglades, so he gets quite a bit of wildlife parading past his house. Bobcats, owls, possums, raccoons, sometimes even a Florida panther. A few years back he set up a camera outside to take pictures of them. Look who it snapped last week, just a few minutes after he turned the camera on:
Yes, that’s a full-grown black bear. I remember back in 1969, there was a TV show called “Gentle Ben,” about a family in the Everglades that was friends with a 600-lb. black bear. Is a camera the way they got acquainted?
