I hope he crossed the road safely. Cool to see one from an enclosed vehicle. :)

Most cars can run faster than a bear, not true for bicycles.

Judging by road position, I would say that wasn't the case.  There have been plenty of people who lost the car vs bear war.  I am sure a simple Youtube search would show stupid people and bears. 

In 3 seconds, I found one.  Stupid people and a bear.

You know that vertical sticky outy thing that your right foot bumps into when you sit in your car? Gently push down on that with your foot.

It's kinda like feeling safe in a shed.  <falsesenseofsecurity> :)  Bears have ripped doors and portions of roofs of cars and through my own experience, they sure as hell chew and claw their way through a cabin wall in a hurry.

We've had a recent sighting in my town.  Usually just in the county, but this one made it to Reston.

For a while, we were getting a deluge of Black Bears - there was no bear hunting season.

Then they reestablished a Black Bear season in 2004 - a 12 year-old girl got the first one. It only lasts from Oct. 21-25 but things are back toward normal.

I’ve had them run through camp before, maybe three times.  But our bears are small and skittish. They’ll run through camp and up a tree. About twice the size of a big Labrador.

Bears are smart. 399 showed up this spring with four cubs. She is 24 and has had at least 20 cubs. The belief is her secret to success is hanging around Pilgrim Creek where there are lots of photographers and few male grizzlies. She uses the crowds as her shield.

Hey kids, there's a bear trying to get into a car.  Go stand nearby so I can take a picture! :wacko:

While driving in South Dakota I've seen people get out of their cars to get their picture with a buffalo.

 What people don't know is they can't out run a pissed off buffalo.

And buffalos don’t strike me as having any sense of humor at all!

The worst part is the bear was in between a stretch of the highway and rail tracks.  I didn't even know the location of the tracks until a train went by while we were shooting -- and it was only like 25 yards away.  It was a young bear.  It's got a few things to learn.
