Black Bear Close Call

Black Bear On Squak Mountain - Part 2

Me and my dogs were hiking on Squak Mountain and were surprised by a black bear. I think we startled him when we came around the corner, but he startled me and my dogs as well. The two small dogs were on leash and would not stop barking at the bear and trying to run at him, this aggravated the bear and for a minute I thought the bear was going to charge at us. I picked up my two small dogs and put my other two large dogs on leashes and slowly backed away. Luckily he went his way and we went ours.
