There have been a few bear sightings reported all over the listening area in Connecticut and New York. Bears and bear videos have been talked about on our morning shows here in Danbury/Brookfield. These close encounter bear stories and videos are unbelievable and a bear video we received recently from a listener is just as amazing.

We received this video on August 7th from Chris Vagnone of New Milford and it is certainly an up close and personal look at a couple of bears. This took place around Carmen Hill in New Milford and it appears to show two bears either fighting or playing, I am not sure which, what do you think?

You may be wondering what should you do if you see a bear in your yard, this is directly from

What Should I Do if I See a Black Bear in My Yard?

If you see a black bear in your yard, enjoy the sighting from a distance and report your sighting. However, be sure you are not doing anything to attract the bear to your yard. Attempt to scare the bear off by making noise, such as banging pots and pans, shouting or using an air horn or whistle. Once the bear has left the area, take a close look at your yard for potential bear food sources, such as birdfeeders, pet food, dirty barbecue grills, open compost, or trash, and REMOVE those food sources IMMEDIATELY. Bears have incredible long-term memory and will revisit places where they have found food, even months or years later. Bears that are frequently fed, either intentionally or unintentionally through birdfeeders or garbage, may become habituated and lose their fear of people. If a bear behaves in a way that is a threat to public safety, it may have to be euthanized by the department.

If you have an amazing video you want us to see, hit us up on good ol' Facebook or you can download the i95rock app and use the super cool chat feature and send it there. Also, be careful if you run into Yogi or BooBoo out there kids and I will see you again really soon!
