Bear Watch

Photo by David Chamberlain

It seems that the Salisbury bears are getting all the attention lately but of course all the area towns are seeing an uptick in bold ursines wandering into yards and village centers. This bear was photographed by David Chamberlain when it wandered through his backyard in Winsted on Thursday afternoon, July 19. Chamberlain’s photo is close enough to show the tracking collar around the animal’s neck; it’s also close enough to show a very large front tooth.
