I was just telling our morning guy, JR Mitchell on Q-106.5, that we do have bears in our little town of Levant. JR and his honey bun just moved into town, and they just recently bought a dog. However, other than seeing a couple of black bears, and having one tear down our bird feeder a few years ago, we've never had any problems...and we also have dogs. But that's not to say something will never happen.

Take for instance a couple of bulldogs who were not very happy about a visiting black bear, who also was looking for a snack in the bird feeder. You could hear someone hollering in a panicked voice in the distance, and only one dog returned. I'm sure it's fine.
