As I have mentioned in the past, Berkshire County folks love capturing wildlife on their cell phones, and why not? It's a fun hobby especially if nobody is getting hurt. With the benefit of technology, we get to see animals in the wild do things that we wouldn't have been able to capture as easily decades ago. It seems like this year the bears are really making their way on camera as seen here.

We have seen national news stories where bears walk right into homes as they are on the hunt for food. This is a great reminder to keep your doors and windows shut and locked tight especially if you live in a heavily wooded area. However, there are other videos that people have shared online that include bears, bobcats, beavers, moose, dear, etc. simply out in nature, minding their own business and doing what they need to do to in order to survive.
