Well I am home, and had a great time, as for my excitment I won't mind if I never have this kind again we were in the garden having a drink when the dog started barking, we turned around and this was less that 6' away from us, we got the dog in the house, and after a few minutes the Bear walked down the rest of the garden and we called the police, this was in the paper the next day. ( We were in Farmington )

Last year it was mountain lions, this year it's bears.

It seems like each week there is another new report of a bear sighting in central Connecticut. A bear was struck and killed in Windsor on Interstate 91 last week. A young bear hunkered down for a green snack in a backyard in Meriden recently and another one lounged in a backyard in Southington before scooting off into the woods. Even more bear sightings have been reported in the region around Cheshire.

There have even been confirmed and unconfirmed sightings of bears in Tolland.

According to the state Department of Environmental Protection here is the breakdown of reports of bear activity in this area from June 26, 2011 to June 24, 2012:

•Avon, 115
•Canton, 97
•East Granby, 35
•Farmington, 146
•Granby, 43
•Simsbury, 95
•West Hartford, 19

Nope, no bears down here. There are big cats but they don't ramble into your yard and open your garbage can Rolling my eyes. Monkeys can do a lot of damage if they are in the mood, and of course raccoons and coatimundis. Still, they aren't anywhere near as scary as a bear. I'm glad you're all right but I agree that 6ft is waaaay too close.
A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.
