Young black bear tangles with strangely unresponsive buck

In Paula and Troy Scott’s latest trail camera experiment, they positioned an infrared video camera at the intersection of a couple of trails in Plummer’s Hollow and stationed a deer-shaped archery target as a decoy for whatever might come along. I think they were hoping for footage of bucks attempting to spar with it, but instead they got three, 30-second videos of a young black bear having his way with it.

Black bears often attack things that people leave behind in the woods, such as hunters’ blinds and large pieces of trash.

  1. Is it attacking or just exploring? Anyhoo, something sure does make its ears itch.

  2. Fascinating to watch. Thanks for sharing this!
