My Brother’s Next-Door Neighbor

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?
