The wrong end of a bear (not that there's a right end)
In the past week a 300 pound black bear has made stealth appearances in three separate neighborhoods in our little college town. Last night it was Fearing Street, immediately adjacent to UMass.
Starting next weekend, Fearing Street becomes a superhighway of students on foot looking for late night entertainment. Although a hungry black bear probably does not qualify.

The other wrong end of a bear
On Friday the big black bear shown in these pictures paid a visit to a bird feeder at a Bed & Breakfast on Northampton Road (Rt 9) one street over from Amity Street, where a bear fitting the same description ambled around the Amity Place Condos complex last week.
