First Place: A. Kristt: A Giant Black Bear on my Porch
Hello, I thought this video was pretty cool. We purchased the Logitech WiLife system because we wanted to see what wildlife lived in the area. Also, we wanted to know if there were any endangered animals that lived in our woods. We have 4 cameras that are installed around the outside of our front porch. They are amazing because they catch the slightest movements of the smallest animals, even in low light. Because of the Logitech WiLife system, we now know that we have mink, fox, raccoon, bear, dear, skunk, various birds, and other small mammals that visit our yard. These cameras are great for wildlife watchers or bird watchers.
Our cameras caught footage of a bear. This is the second time he was on my porch that night. The bear seems to have no fear of humans or dogs. He keeps sneaking up and looking in my windows. At first he poured over an old cup of coffee and lay on the steps for awhile, and then he tore open a small bag of garbage. He just kind of wandered around until he got tired and left.
Also, after this video was posted on youtube, MSNBC, the Today Show, and MANY local news stations were calling. We were interviewed by Tamron Hall on MSNBC and the story appeared on many national news channels. So because of this bear, we had our five minutes of fame.
