I was sitting in my hot tub a month or so ago, and as I stepped out, I spooked a female Black Bear that had walked up to it - it was two feet from me.  I struggled to get "Bbbeeeaaarrr!" out before it bound over the deck and out into the woods.  The following day, I found a print in the mud beside my house, about 9 inches in diameter, and deep. 

The bear hair comes from Oregon, so I know it's not my bear, but in homage to it.
