Bear in Amherst caught on camera pulling down bird feeder
AMHERST – Benegal and Debbie Pereira had heard about black bears roaming the woods around their home before, but never believed it.
Around 8:30 a.m. in the backyard of their Greenbriar Lane home, the couple spotted a black bear in search of food. Benegal Pereira had his camera ready and captured a series of photos of the bear going after a bird feeder.
After climbing to reach the food, the bear left the feeder crumpled on the ground.
“Quite an excitement,” Benegal Pereira said.
