About 6pm on Wedenesday evening, Mark was preparing to throw a bag of trash in the dumpster. He slid back the door on the right side and was startled to see an equally started Black Bear on the inside of the dumpster! The bear climbed out of the dumpster, but refused to leave. Mark stuck around just long enough to snap one quick "cell phone photo" of the bear turning toward the brush, but decided to wait until Thursday to discard the trash bag.
Note: A Black Bear looks much larger on the inside of a dumpster than it does on the outside!
