Midland Woman Comes Face-to-Face With Bear in Her Backyard
Earlier this week a Midland woman and her husband spotted a bear snacking on their bird feeders in their backyard.
Lou Ann Holland was sitting in her living room Monday evening with her husband when he looked out the window and saw a bear in their backyard. While he called 911, Lou Ann started taking pictures and videos.
It wouldn't be that big of a deal if this had happened in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, but this happened in Midland.
Lou Ann posted this on Facebook:
So. Um. This just happened at 8:45pm tonight.
We were just sitting in the living room, and Aaron, looking out the window behind me, says, “So. There’s a bear.”I said, “WHAT DO WE DO?! WHO DO WE CALL??!”I started taking pictures & videos, he called 911, I called Skip the neighbor.
P.S. No need to call 911 when there’s a freaking bear. Even if it’s TWO INCHES away from where you drink your morning coffee. Mostly because they already know there’s one in our neighborhood. Whaaattt??!!
At on point while taking photos, Lou Ann and the bear locked eyes as you can see in the photo below. She said this was moment when she almost pooped her pants. If I came face-to-face with a bear, I'm sure that's exactly what would have happened.
