Bears getting into cars and trash isn't anything new in Asheville.  The picture below is of the largest of the bears that frequents my street.  This is a pic of him last fall, he's bigger now.  The neighbors all call him "big bubba".  He's one of the few large bears to not have been caught and collared for the urban bear study.  I'd say 80% of the bears we see are collared.  I live literally in the city, 1.5 miles from the center of downtown Asheville.  What's interesting to see is how well the bears adapt to avoid people and avoid yards with dogs in them.

Wow.  Bubba is about twice as big as our bear. 

We're about 8 miles east of Mars Hill, NC

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

Spoke to a dude that lives on Little Snake Creek in Carroll county that witnessed on two different occasions a bear munching on fawns in his back yard.  He said the two area sows both had triplets this year.

This one was seen in our area (about 4 miles from here) a few days ago. JT says it looks like 500-600 lbs. to him from looking at the photo.
