Caught on Camera

Mia Bassham’s deck was built pretty well as it withstood the weight of this large bear that paid a visit on Sept. 19. Bassham, of Mountain Top, snapped the photo as the bruin stopped by one afternoon.

If the bear made it through hunting season, it’s likely in its den for the winter. And for as big as it was when it walked across Bassham’s deck in September, it will likely be quite a bit larger next year after it fattens up from its winter slumber.

Capture anything interesting on your hand-held or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or any other wildlife? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run photos from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine), and any other details to [email protected]
