Good catch!!

 

These bears are in the wild. It is kind of scary because you walk through the woods with them. When you see them coming you have to get out of their way, so you back up slowly in the trees. We had to do that all day! It was like "dodge the bear" My son was with me and he turned around and one was not 10 feet from him. And this was just outside our cabin. Won't tell you what he said. But he did back up slowly to inside the cabin.
