Wild Video of Bears Scaling Trees at Brookfield Home
He's a former radio host, a karaoke host, a football coach and a Brookfield resident, his name is Johnny Love and this happened in his backyard.
Johnny sent the following videos to the Ethan, Lou and Large Dave Morning Show on I95. Johnny knows we covered the movements of the Danbury moose recently, and asked the question: "Can we get back to the bears?" NOTE - 2 Videos in Instagram post below.
I sent Johnny a reply, "is this real, where was this, what is going on?" Johnny told me this happened in his backyard in Brookfield. He lives on Route 25 by Happy Landings and told me: "it happened on Friday, my neighbors took the video, I was at work, it was literally 15 yards off my back deck."
I asked Johnny what he would have done to scare them off if he were home? He replied: "I would’ve put on my finest speedo lathered up in honey and went and wrassled with those cubs." That is a very funny, and very Johnny Love answer right there. It's an image I'd rather not have swimming in my head, but the damage is done. BUT WAIT! They came back when Johnny was home, to climb some trees. NOTE - 2 Videos in Instagram post below.

This comes on the heels of Moose Situation 2022 where a loose moose was appearing all over the Greater Danbury area. I think the animals are trying to tell us something, what that is, I don't know.
P.S. I also wanted to know Johnny's Top 3 Favorite Bears of all time, this was his list:
- Walter Payton
