Bear sighting

July 06, 2009

This black bear, weighing between 150 to 200 pounds, was lying beneath the bird feeder eating sunflower seeds at Donavon Branch's home on Garrison Hollow Road in Clear Spring recently. The bear wasn't at all concerned when family members went out on the porch and took pictures. The family tried to get its attention by yelling "hey, bear," but the bear never looked up. Its main priority was the sunflower seeds. In the 28 years that the family has lived in Clear Spring, they had never seen a bear. Sightings have been reported in the area, but family members never saw one. Now, they said, they will be looking over their shoulders when they're outside wondering where the bear might pop up next.
