Island Bear

After several months of no sightings, Sanibel‘s lone black bear has been spotted several times lately.  He was on the road behind the Dunes for awhile and has recently been seen back on conservation land.  He first appears over a year ago.  No one is quite sure how he got here, but he either swam over or paid his $6 and came over the causeway bridges.  Our greatest fear now is that he will get into garbage bins and become a nuisance in which case he will have to be trapped…although the attempt to trap him last year was unsuccessful.
