When Sampson and I were visiting my parents last year, I walked around the corner of their home and out of the corner of my eye, saw a bear in this exact same location! Sampson chased it into the cornfield; and that was that. It didn't come back for a while.

The bear must have forgot about the Sampson experience; because it is back! My parents put up a camera and got these great photos! The bear or visiting bears definitely do their fair share of damage to the bird feeders; I think Dad said they also like to visit the trash cans.

If you check the time captions you'll see that this bear is making my family farm a regular stop!
