Life in outter Suburbia!

Just look at what I can run into on my way home!

Bear makes a brief home in Spring Valley:
"For nearly four hours yesterday, a 300-pound black bear lounged on a thick tree branch, stretching, yawning, licking his paws and snoozing.

In this densely populated village, an 8-year-old bear sitting 25 feet off the ground drew a crowd that grew to more than 250 people at the Blueberry Hill housing complex off Route 306.

People pointed, photographed and kept testing the patience of police by inching closer to the 40-foot-high tree outside 25 Kearsing Parkway.

The bear climbed the tree at 9:14 a.m. after wandering into the housing development, police said.

At 1:04 p.m., about 15 minutes after a state environmental conservation officer shot two tranquilizer darts into the bear, the drama ended."
