American Black Bear

Ursus americanus


Juvenile bear about three feet tall, four feet long on all fours.


Continental montane forest.


Spotted as it approached US Highway 26. When the bear observed my vehicle it retreated toward roadside trees. I stopped to try to get its picture. It moved along the treeline until it was behind my vehicle and then ran across the road. During this quick-paced encounter I was able to take only the two slightly-out-of-focus images above.
