That's a garden variety black bear also known as a TCR-trash can raider. One that looks like that has been terrorizing the neighbors this spring and has also been in the back yard eying my barbque grills-either as a source of food or a mating opportuity. I think the neighbors have finally figured out it is time to take down the suet cakes, bird feeders,etc and start going to the landfill at least once a week.
Looks like the "cinnamon" color phase; a common variant of the black bear.
I was at Chopaka on one trip and got to see an adult Black bear climbing the hill across from the campgrounds.
On another trip my brother and I were fishing Benewah Creek in Northern Idaho when a two cubs, a black one and a cinnamon colored one crossed upstream less than 250 feet from us.
A minute late the Sow crossed. She was Black, paused, then stood upright staring us down. We just froze until they passed and then left in search of a better stream to fish.
I'd say Black Bear, brown color phase (not enough red to cinnamon) would be my guess, although it's hard to be 100% positive from that angle . . . head looks too narrow for a Griz & I don't see a distinctive hump, but it's also a young bruin. The ears seem more rounded than a Blackie. If I were hunting it, I'd definitely want a better look before I committed.
I came almost face to face with a black bear on Pilchuck creek one time. I came around a bend in the creek and he came across it about the same time. I believe that was the time I walked on water. I turned around and beat feet down to where my brother was and we left that area. We were about 30' apart.
In my many years of fishing in Washington I have never ran across as many black bears than I did in my last years there. Ever since they quit using dogs to hunt with the bear population has gone up.
