"I spotted a black man in my backyard a few summers ago. He was stealing from me." @mandatorymullets, I spotted a white guy a sandy hook elementary,he was culling the herd. ;)

I agree Annie, when I saw a bear on my property I thought it was pretty cool and enjoyed the scene. If I see a person on my property I will probably grab my rifle. The bear will not hurt a thing, the human might.

Don't see local media printing pictures of groundhogs, or skunks, coyotes (which have become common in recent years),

ksmith, summed it up. Thus leading to comments that in ONES view have nothing to do with story...but ACTUALLY DOES!

Yep. Read article 4 times , its about a bear. All comments here but one..uh hum...are about bears.

Oldman, agree however in my opinion, bobcats although uncommon in NE Ohio are much more aggressive than black Bear, bobcats attack without reason, and don't eat humans! More common in PA, a pack of coyotes can be more just as or even more dangerous to children, pets, livestock.

There are few large predators in wild in these parts, I believe strongly in respecting these intelligent creatures.

I hope the bear doesn't harm anybody, and nobody panics and harms bear.

Seeing a bear in your back yard, is not only exciting but can be dangerous too. Just thankful there was no little kid out playing alone in the back yard. Normally bears will try to avoid you, unless they feel threaten or provoked. But just like most animals you can never be too sure, how or what they will do. To see a bear any where it should be reported for safety reasons. It could turn and maul a kid playing in the yard or someone's pet that is special to them. So when you see a bear or coyote even close to your place or along the road, please report it.

Billdog? Didn't know we were limited to article content, your rules or what?

Anyways..Rezistance, good point. People are scared of bear because not used to seeing them. Black Bear attacks on humans are rare but do happen, they are omnivores, however feed mostly on vegetation and scavenge.

Have feeling this one in picture checking out bird feeders, they have incredible sense of smell.

Anie53, very true..be more concerned of a human lurking in backyard.

Sorry billypup, was discussing picture out of bounds?

After reading comments I always realize most commenter's never read the article, just the headline, or they are so ADD that they forgot what they read going to the comment thread.

well people in Ohio aren't used to running into animals in their back yard that can eat and kill them. If you think the bear will leave you alone, take off running away from it to prove your theory.

You have nothing to fear if you see a bear roaming around your back yard....on the other hand....if you see a human roaming around your back yard....then you have something to worry about.

A lot of times they transfer bears to the game reserve in Mecca for their own safety... or so they say... so the bear doesn't get hurt by a car or some city person boobie trapping the garbage.

Disagree already. Feel firmly about leaving animals in habitat alone.

Please explain why we should not...

Remember bear down in Poland or Canfield couple years ago...All the Yuppies freaked, had animal relocated either Trumbull or Ashtabula, bear migrated towards Twinsburg and ended up dying.

Another example of Surburbanites intolerance towards out of their bubble world norm.

Amazing..Ohio peoples reaction to a natural predator of the forest. Ooooo SCAREY! Pa folk have bear everywhere, they deal with the creatures, one happens to wonder over state line and people freak out.

Leave the animal alone..may kill off other pesty animals.

What a shame to post this event in the media. Now all the Lookie-Lous will be out and cause more disturbance. When bears show up on my property I never ever report just to keep people away from both my property and from the bear. It will probably move on if left alone. Not always, but probably.
