We’re traveling across Wyoming today. These bears were NOT traveling across Wyoming, but at Bear Country, back in South Dakota. It’s a glorified zoo, but the bears literally walk up to your car and stare at you. They’re swapping license plate sightings or something, probably steal hubcabs when the owners aren’t looking. I’ve rarely seen bears this close, except at that garbage dump in Appalachia. :]
Three feet from the car – check the video on my FB timeline for when he got two inches from the car.
Union says the bears get breaks. He wasn’t waving at nobody until he’d had his cigarette.
