Peek-a-Boo Bear

This photo was taken at Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Gatlinburg, TN, US. I volunteer in the back country for the GSMNP. This bear followed me for over a mile on The Little River Trail up past the Husky Branch. He was close but not aggressive. He was checking out my pack but I discouraged him. Imagine if I had had a small dog on a leash with me. We call them bear bait. FYI, Since 2010, over 50 % of all bear attacks in the USA have involved a dog. Love your dog ? Then leave him at home. Especially when the sows leave the den with new cubs and during mating season when males become very territorial.
