Bear Sitting in Cottesmore at Lely Resort. Was that a bear in the woods??
Heads up to our Cottesmore neighbors in Lely Resort. One evening last week around dusk I spotted what I thought was a large black dog wandering around our neighbors front yard. As I took a closer look I realized it was a large BLACK BEAR! Oh yea, just wandering around through the shrubs and walking between the homes. Tried to get a picture but another neighbor approached with his two small dogs that were barking and scared the bear off. He took off towards the golf course.
We have lived in Lely Resort for over 8 years. This is the first time I have seen a Black Bear. A few years ago one was photographed in Ole at Lely Resort near the Village Center. Once they discover a source for food, i.e. the trash bins, they will return. Be careful if you walk your dog after dark.
Lely Resort . . . it’s all about the lifestyle! Bears and otherwise.
