Neighborhood Black Bear

Living about half a mile from Interstate 5 in the middle of suburban Seattle, I don’t really expect to see much wildlife. Sure we get crows, pigeons and squirrels, but there aren’t even rabbits in the yards here like we had in Iowa. Turns out there was a black bear in Ravenna this morning, less than a mile from my house. If it really came south from Shoreline like the speculation suggests, it might have even strolled down my street. I don’t remember hearing about bears in the city last year, so I’m not sure how common this is. Apparently that’s bear number 33 or 34 cited in Western Washington so far this spring. KOMO has the video.
