At about 9:30 pm on July 13, we were driving home from a lovely cottage weekend. We were heading north on Northey’s Bay Road, along the north shore of Upper Stoney Lake, 1 km before the community centre (at Highway 28). There was no moon and therefore not much light to see the teenage Black Bear lumbering along the side of the road heading south. He quickly disappeared into the forest as we neared. Perhaps he was interested in the horses and riders which were walking just a little further north! Please drive less than the speed limit at night! A Porcupine was also out for a leisurely stroll along the middle of the roadway!
