PHOTOS: Black bear near Hazeldean and Jinkinson

These photos are from Kenny B, who spotted a black bear just off Hazeldean Road near Jinkinson, just past West Ridge on Thursday, June 4.

He tells us: “I was with a friend we went for a drive with her dog to take him for a walk… About 500 yards in the distance from the road he was just there grazing.  So I hopped into action got my camera and got some shots before he disappeared back into the woods. He was a big boy anywhere from 400-500 lbs.”

It’s the latest in a series of bear sightings in the area over the past month.

  1. Really glad you had the opportunity to experience these last instances of wildlife in our area. There are ancient crab apple trees, and regular apple trees in the area which might keep attracted to the area. I have not seen one there before, but have heard of them being there in the past so I always keep my eyes open for them. Really glad he was left alone to just be a bear.
