Black Bear in Solvang
By an edhat reader
I found this guy eating what appeared to be acorns under a tree in Solvang. He did not seem to mind the attention and continued to feed ignoring a small crowd of human onlookers. I have never seen a black bear this calm around people, usually, I catch a glimpse of a bear’s hindquarters as it runs away. Is this normal behavior for a bear? Is this bear an adolescent or an adult?
