I took my girlfriend out looking for bears tuesday. Guess you could say I delivered. We saw two and got pics of one of them. I was surprised how calm she was when this one wouldn't leave us alone. Ok, I was also surprised how calm I was. This bear took a lot of convincing to go away. The short version is that even after shouting and waving at the bear, it kept coming towards us. After a lot of rock throwing and even a gun shot, the bear casually left. This was miles from anything, so I'm still not sure why this bear was so comfortable around us.
