This picture was taken from inside the cottage kitchen on Deer Bay Reach Road, Lower Buckhorn, at 5 pm on Sunday, July 12. The young Black Bear was climbing an oak tree beside the cottage, possibly to get acorns on the roof. My husband was trying to shoo it off with a cutting board. Closing the window worked better!  This bear has visited several properties recently in the area.
