Bear in Tollymore Forest
« on: March 31, 2013 »

So I took a trip up to Tollymore a day or two ago and spotted a brown bear - thankfully he didn't spot me. Pretty scary, he was a big fella but seemed gentle.

I didn't know we had bears here?

Anyway, here's a pretty low quality video I shot.

wow, wouldn't have believed it if i hadn't see the video  :o  what freaked me out is that i walked through that forest the other night myself, heard some rustling but assumed it was a sheep or dear, this definitely looks like it could be a bear though
