Bear enjoys mid-day snack

It seemed that nothing, including the neighborhood’s barking dogs, bothered this bear as he enjoyed feasting on the apples in a tree in a residential neighborhood on West High Street in downtown Quincy. He climbed the tree last Saturday, Aug. 10, at around 1:30 p.m. and leisurely spent the next 45 minutes high atop the tree enjoying his mid-day snack. His unhurried departure led him across the roof of a shed attached to the owner’s home. Photo by Mike Taborski
