that I encountered on Saturday night. As I was leaving my house for work, I had encountered a large black bear, I live in a wooded area and have to walk a path to my car, when I looked up I stopped and at the top of the path was the bear! I have never in all my life was so close to a real bear! If I would of went any further me and this bear would of been very close.
I started going back to my house and when I got to the gate I ran to the door, I shook so bad I couldn't get the key in the door!

I called 911 and they came, but the bear was gone, the one cop saw a paw print and said " I think he went down here" They were going to call wildlife about it.

But, I am still so very scared, afraid to come to the place and afraid to leave. Tonight I have to go out again, I have some Blessed salt I am taking with me and I am going to sprinkle it around and pray. I thank God so much for telling me to look, it's a bear, go in the house. God is my refuge!

I know that many of you might not be afraid, but I am very scared! I hope you don't laugh at me for this. I could use some prayers.


Shaking,
Cindy

Cindy,

Just reading your account scared me. That one would give me nightmares. As with other posters, my prayers are with you. I know you will have your antenna up each time you exit your car or leave your house. Maybe you should consider moving to Houston. We don't have any bears here but at times lots of mosquitoes. I do like women though who are like bears - teddy bears. laughing

Blessings, Praying hug rose

(Quote) Mary-486033 said: Dear Cindy,

Did you find out if the policeman was correct about bears not staying in the same area for more than a couple days?

I assume you did your research on safety tips? www.rd.com

Did you buy the bear spray? www.centerforwildlifeinformation.org

I see Carolyn suggested pepper spray. The wildlife site states personal defense sprays and bear sprays are not the same.

However, you still should always carry pepper spray on your key ring for general safety. Not all pepper sprays are equal in strength, delivery systems, or output (content dispersed in a cone, stream line, or fog). This is the one I prefer because of it's delivery system: www.spitfire.us I, also, have this one: www.gettornado.com

Carolyn's comment is cute.... "May the spray be with you."

Yep, never go anywhere without my spray:)

I didn't know there wasn't bears in Texas.What wild animals do you have there? Tigers?
Moving to Texas is something I might consider.

The weather is about to cool- at least here- this could influence where the bear is. You might ask to have the area searched?
