Woman Scares Black Bear off Bird Feeder in Backyard

Occurred on March 4, 2022 / Brookfield, Connecticut, USA

Info from Licensor: So I was actually filming birds for my mother in law which I do all the time and didn’t even notice the bear approaching. Then I panicked thinking about the empty feeder that I hadn’t taken down and I didn’t want him to break the branch on my favorite tree. So I ran out without the pan and spoon I usually use to scare him away. I tried to be nice at first because I felt bad and I’m sure he was hungry but there was no seed even left because the raccoons got to it the night before!! I was planning on taking them down but he got to them before I did. He started visiting ever since we temporarily took the fence down to build the pool. The fence and my dogs were usually enough of a deterrent to keep him out but it’s wide open to the forested area in the back and I guess he’s back in action for spring. I saw the bear eying the hole where the pool will be so I have a feeling he will be back ha!
