The bear in Art's pic looks like an adolescent to me, not old. I've read several articles on this and it seems likely that the bear in the original photo has mange, which causes lots of hair to fall out and would explain the less-than-hairy look both that bear and Art's bear both have.

It's an unhealthy bear, I've seen dozens of them.


Dozens of them? :-? What do you work in a bear hospital? :-? :-b

Your picture certainly looks closer, but the body shape still doesn't look like a bear (including the mangy bear you posted). The hind leg knee joint also seems too high.

Here's all 3 pictures he submitted:

Sounds like a girl I used to date. :-?

Let's think about this for a moment. Let's say you're going to set up a remote camera on a trigger or trip wire to capture wildlife images. You want images of the animal, right? So if that's the case, why in the world would you position the camera so that part of the picture is occluded by the foliage?

Seems to me like they wanted something other than a perfect picture, you know?

The bad guy did say "...gotten away with it..." didn't he? I remember that.

Put the bear in the picture I posted in the same position and take a picture from the same angle and it will look almost identical. Sick, mangey (mangie?) bears look almost nothing like the typical black bear that people are used to seeing. And no, I've never worked in a bear hospital, but I used to live in a bear-heavy rural area. I've seen hundreds and hundreds of them. It was nothing to have a bear stroll through the front yard, and for a good time when friends and family would visit we'd often go to the local dump, where there could be as many as 30 at any given time.

Or maybe there's an unclassified species of primate living in rural Pennslyvania. Doesn't Coppermine live in PA? Where was his mom the night that picture was taken?

If he uses incorrect grammar, I have a problem. I thought that you would appreciate that.
