I am on vacation at my mother’s house in the beautiful state of New Hampshire. This morning I went outside to put up three bird feeders. (We take the birdfeeders in the house at night because bears get into them). As I hung the third feeder, I turned and saw a black bear stealing the first one. He was about 20 feet away from me. I ran in the house pretty quickly! He stayed around until he had eaten all the food and then ambled off. I went out and brought the feeders back inside. I think they will not go back out this summer.
