While all the crazy people were awaiting the Zombie Apocalypse something far worse has begun… Bear infestation in Connecticut. When we started reporting on this a week ago, the sightings were sparse and the interactions were limited. That’s all changed now. Two Granby residents were faced with the bears and were hiding behind trees to avoid them. Both were chased by the bear that seems to be young weighing between 140 and 160 pounds. One man had scrapes across his chest. One woman sprinted for ONE MILE with the bear at an arms length away.
There have been over 4300 bear sightings in Connecticut over the last year and most do not involve a chase or attack. But as we’ve seen in the last week, that might be changing.
