It's head is on the right side of the tree, looking at us.

Only a few evenings ago, we had a visit of the island's black bear in our back yard. When he saw us, he quickly walked over behind a tree, and with only a quick look toward us, turned and hurried off into a wildlife preserve that is behind our house. A couple of hours later, someone told us that traffic came to a stop on Periwinkle Way as the bear walked across. It had evidentally walked straight across the preserve and onto Periwinkle near Matzaluna Restaurant. Now the Florida Black Bear is going to a new home. I felt fortunate to get a visit and a good look (and a not so good photo) at the bear and feel sad that he's being taken away. I know that's the best solution all around, but it's still sad that an animal can't be safe on a wildlife preserve.
