Black Bear

Animal Person

In a stroke of the surreal, my heart beat frantically as my eye was yanked from the cheery, colorful bears on the sticker, to a mammoth black bear, tethered to the back of a white pickup truck, and held down with chicken wire. He was bleeding from several bullet wounds, and visibly in excruciating pain. I hadn’t yet perfected the art of not getting hysterical when I saw an injured animal, so I was quite a sight, I’m sure.
