What kind of bear did you see there? If it was a Black Bear, it was something else that scared them off. If it was a brown bear, he probably ate them.

Bears are dangerous
It's my undeerstand that bear do eat deer and elk fawns, and that a mama bear with her cubs can pose a danger to you. I advise it best to not feel wildlife.

I wouldn't feed any of them. Its just asking for problems.

A bear will eat anything that a deer will eat, and more.

I will have to agree with the postings. Should not feed WILD animals. Some states it is illegal. Wish it was in mine..................:wink:

it is dangerous and irresponsible to feed wildlife

Most of the animals I have to put down have become accustomed to human as a food source and have lost all fear

The most dangerous animal there is is a wild animal that has lost it's fear of man

Even a deer can and will kill or severely injure a human

You have experienced first hand why the practice is illegal
By feeding the deer you have lured in a very very dangerous element
Not only have you place your home and family in danger you have exposed the deer to a danger that they may not have been exposed to if they had not been coerced into coming to a predictable place at a predictable time
