Ulster Park NY- White Tail Deer Country Turned Black Bear Country

By
Real Estate Agent with C21 Alliance Realty Group

 

I have a herd of White Tail Deer that live in my yard. They sleep in the grass of my backyard and eat the blackberries in my front yard. They will also enjoy anything I try to plant. We get along fine. Pictured here with my dog, Boomer, is Bucky a three year old buck that has been in my yard since stumbling out as a fawn. The deer tease Boomer, who goes out on a rope. The deer go just close enough so they know Boomer will not be able to reach them.

 

We have all sorts of wild life in our yard turtles, squirrels, rabbits, chipmunks, wild turkeys and all sorts of birds. We call it our game farm.

 

Today "game farm" took on a whole new meaning.

 

This Black bear was in my neighbors yard...eating the garbage.

 

This guy was pretty comfortable with us going out to take pictures.

 Giving up my garden is one thing but this is a whole different thing...Yipes. Now we need a "Please don't Feed the Bear" sign.

 

In an earlier blog a talked about the deer and about having no curb appeal because the deer ate it.  Does anyone have advise on Bear Repellent??????

Konnie- I zoomed in.. but we were pretty close. I was in the car we drove up to it. It was a little scary.

What's next? Lions, and Tigers, and Bears OH My...  They usually won't do anything to humans but don't mess with the mama bear and don't try to get them out of the garbage can if they do get in.  They can get aggressive then.  Have a great week Barbara

Paddy- I learned a lot from the DEC website. I am looking to find bear pellent garbage cans. That guy- grabbed the neighbors garbage in a second and took it under a tree to enjoy.

Becky- I think Nathan, Drew and Mia would love to see it- It will probably scare Daniele and Molly.

Barbara - I have seen many critters in my backyard at some point.  So far no bear sighting and I hope to keep it that way.
