The bear doesn't look that big in the photo with the several raccoons. Good bunch of pictures, by the way.
I will say, however, that a black bear, even a cub, can look pretty big when he's standing on his hind legs. And for whatever you hear about them being shy, they are rather intimidating, especially in threes.
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
