The Pokegama bear
This yearling black bear has taken up a temporary residence on site 13 at Pokegama Dam Recreation Area! We first shared his presence on Oct. 2, and he’s still minding his own business while filling up on a plentiful supply of acorns before winter sets in. Experts in the area estimate this yearling black bear to be about 60 pounds, and is almost certainly on its own already after perhaps being abandoned.
