LOL. I guess it's clear I haven't lived in PA long? Only since November. I moved here from Florida and lived in Texas for years too, so alligators, rattlers, coral snakes, coyotes? I'm used to all those. A bear, though? That's a shock.

Well, he just wanted to come give you a welcome to the state as well!

....and to see if you had anything good to eat, too.

Bears, like that black bear in your pic, are omnivores, meaning that they eat berries, nuts, seeds, grasses, sedges, and other various plant matter along with things like fish and the occasional small/medium sized mammal. So, if you have bird feeders out, or even bowls of dog food, the bear will most likely have been attracted to that food source. They are even attracted to cans of garbage so be careful where you store them. Inside a garage is a good place. Bears have incredibly sensitive noses and can smell the smallest morsel of food from a good distance off.

Like previously stated, that bear looks like rather thin, like its not been long since it awoke from hibernation. They tend to be irritable and hungry this time of year, (wouldn't you be like that if you had slept for 3-4 months without anything to eat?), especially mother bears with their young cubs. Don't ever get between a momma bear and her cubs because it'll end badly as they are very protective of them.

Remember, we are living on what was once their wilderness homelands, so its only natural for them to be there. We are the invaders, not them.

He was just trying to welcome you to PA! LOL Where I live, I found a dead corn snake half a block from my house, and I find live ones in my backyard sometimes, too. Skinks, stray cats, opossums, moles, rats, deer... but I've never found a BEAR in my backyard!

Yikes be careful and wow I am impressed with all the good advise the members are giving you. I sometimes worry about seeing a bear where I live which is a very wooded area with around 10 acres to roam around in. I have been back here for over 20 years though and no bears to be seen only deer, wild turkey, fox, racoon, possum(one on my front porch the other night) maybe a Bigfoot or two..joking
