    That's an incredible sight! I'm not much of a bear judger, but the one in the lower left looks like a piggy.

    Man, what are you feeding them? I'd assume a neighbor must be unintentionally baiting them in...or maybe there is a carcass nearby? That is crazy!

    Not sure what the deal is, but we've had LOTS of bears this year. Five at a time is a little ridiculous though. I did wash off a tarp with some moose blood on it back there, but that was a week+ earlier, not that much blood, and it dumped rain all week so I don't think that attracted them.

    They were pretty cool to watch until one of them started chewing on the vent for the drain field and I had to go chase them off.
