We are having a problem with a neighbor. A young bear has come up on our porch the last couple of nights. There is no animal control in our county and I don't want to kill it. I fired a shotgun out the window to scare it off. We are making sure the bird feeders and pet food containers are empty at night. Hopefully he will leave or I guess we will be eating bear meat. They can be dangerous when they lose their fear of people.
Have a blessed day everyone.
In all the years I've been going up there, I've only seen a couple bears. I saw one at Newfound Gap, and a couple cubs crossing the road near Maggie Valley. Be careful!
