We live among black bear in our area. Our yard is a regular route from one water source to another, with the occasional stop at our pear tree in late Summer. This image is called "Truce" for a couple of reasons: 1. bears can be a heated topic of local debate (some support education and legislation as a means of peaceful coexistence; others move to extend the hunting season); and 2. if coexistence is to ultimately prevail, there must be a mutual respect and understanding between human and bear. For example, never ever feed them.
