About This Image

it was a pastime for residents to go "watch the bears" at the isolated community where we lived in Northern British Columbia, Canada. This is a Black Bear. sometimes grizzlies came there also, but we avoided those.

The man in car had apples, the bear ambled towards us to get the offered apple, - as it got closer, suddenly standing upright on hind legs. My boyfriend/later DH, took the pic. Didn't realize how tall the bear was, til seeing photo later : ) Am 5' 9" tall, which gives you an idea of bears height. Note hand in bear's mouth. Would I do this again, - who knows - doubt the situation would ever arise

Hi Doug, great to see you here, many thanks for taking time to leave a comment. That sure seems like a looong time ago, - guess it was : )
Guest - Dec 01, 2007 07:18 PM EDT

Hi Vicki, you gave me a smile for the morning. Well, am not so sure I'd be doing the same thing if this happened "today", but at the time it didn't seem so unusual, as we were very used to the black bears coming to our gardens each night to raid the garbage cans, just before time to hibernate each year. But Grizzlies are a different matter.
Guest - Jul 20, 2007 12:00 PM EDT
Gracious, Alandra - you make my bear images look positively "wimpy" after you did something like this! What a great memory. I did start to approach a huge moose near Wawa, Canada once . . . but when he turned and started casually walking towards me I became 'Chicken Little' and slowly walked backwards to our motorhome! Vicki
Guest - Jun 01, 2007 02:27 PM EDT
LOL, glad you found it, Alan. That wasn't our convertible, belonged to the man sitting in it, who is also long gone now, along with the vehicle. Yeah, that's a great photo to have to "show the grandkids", lol.
Guest - Jun 01, 2007 01:04 PM EDT
WOW!! Your are one wild and crazy gal LOL.. I was checking out your photos and this one caught my eye, then to find out it's you feeding the bear, I'm with Steve "Your Nuts" ROFL... Oh that Convertible Ford is worth a lot of cash now days, still got it? Hey stick to feeding the squirrels and hummers I'll feel a lot better if you do. What a great experience though to have and remember.
Guest - Dec 18, 2006 11:51 PM EDT
it all happened so fast,Beverly, as these things usually do :) - so there was hardly time to think, - just raised my arm as the bear stood up, and gave him/her the apple. We were quite used to the black bears in that northern community, - people always went to that area to watch the bears, who would sit on the smoking embers, without seeming to notice the heat, and lick the honey and jam tins clean (they'd open the big cans with their claws, effortlessly). The empty cans were dumped there by the catering company that cooked for the single men there, who lived in the bunkhouses.
Guest - Dec 18, 2006 11:09 AM EDT
Yes, I understand, running would have been a mistake.
Guest - Dec 17, 2006 10:57 PM EDT
thanks Beverly, now that's really an oldie : ) -- well, I hadn't expected the bear to stand up, as he was walking towards me on all fours, then stood up on hind legs when it got close, so I just had to stand there (and give it the apple) rather than turn and run : )
Guest - Dec 17, 2006 10:17 AM EDT
Very brave of you - but risky. Anyhow, a nice keepsake photo.
Guest - Feb 04, 2006 01:32 AM EDT
Hi again, Gisele, only just noticed your comment on this one, was offline for a couple days, - that's neat that you have also had this same experience of feeding a bear in the wild. We lived at Kemano, (Alcan) - 5 hours by boat from Kitimat, nearest town. Very isolated, only way in or out is by boat or copter in emergencies. Was in both situations. Am getting confused, do you live in the Kootenays?
Guest - Jan 30, 2006 03:29 PM EDT
Well girl it's me again. I had planed to look at all your photos but this one stop me in my tracks.LOLLLL This is something I did myself once and my husband when seeing me that close screamed at me "are you crazy???" Well the bear jumped and so did I!!! I told him he was the one who was nuts to scare the bear. But nothing happened the bear just put his head down and ate what I had in my hand now on the ground of course. I love bears... he is petrified of them. Not a good combination. Love your pictures so far will finish looking at them tonight. Oh tell me where were you in nothern BC?
Guest - Jul 05, 2005 06:19 PM EDT

Guest - Mar 22, 2005 03:21 PM EDT
Very interesting shot!
Guest - Jan 15, 2005 06:32 PM EDT
not to worry, that was a looong time ago, and we don't live in that area anylonger : )
Guest - Jan 15, 2005 06:13 PM EDT
BRRR... Looks like a cute lil teddy, that one. But I've seen too many episodes of "When Animals Attack" to believe too much in their 'cute-ness'. My advice to you...STAY AWAY !!
Guest - Nov 08, 2004 05:44 PM EDT
Alandra,is that you thats a great picture,you wild woman ha ha.I visited Baniff national park when I was 18 and was so excited to see the bears I went down the hill after them and my uncle was so upset and came running after me to get me back to the car.I was young then and I wanted to see the bears up close but the nother had her clubs with her and was indeed a dangereous situation.Wished I got a picture of them but he was too upset by that time.But the memories are still alive!Glad you got the opportunity and the picture what a picture!Thanks for sharing! Love Nancy
Guest - Sep 23, 2004 07:20 PM EDT
you mean you wouldn't do that, Steve? LOL. well, I survived to tell the tale, right, - and am not "pickin' my nose with my elbow" as my dear old dad wuld have said LOL Nope, I'm so proud I didn't turn and run.
Guest - Sep 23, 2004 03:16 PM EDT

Guest - Aug 31, 2004 11:00 AM EDT
GREAT picture. I'd never have the nerve, but can easily imagine myself praying despartley while my boys and husband each have a turn at feeding the bear!
Guest - Aug 30, 2004 10:19 PM EDT
Don't think you would be allowed to do that here! Not these days anyway.
Guest - Aug 28, 2004 09:18 AM EDT
