Bear Sighting - Van Buren Area - 7/16/12

I had a very close encounter (5 ft.) with a mature black bear (300 - 350 lbs.), on Monday, July 16th, 2012 at approx. 5:00 PM, located on 3rd Street between Van Buren Road and Rt. 5, just West of the Fireside restaurant. He was running, and ran right past me, I don't think he knew I was there. He was 40 yds. past me before he stopped, then he walked into the woods. I'm not sure which direction he cam from, possibly from Rt. 5, but I didn't dee him until he was right beside me. It was awesome!... but a bit alarming at the same time! Let me know if anyone else has seen him in the area. Keep your garbage and food sources where he can't get to them!

A bear sighting makes the news? Is the county that desperate for filer articles? Must be.

There could be trouble bruin if we can't control the bear population.
