Close encounter with wildlife

A curious bear startles Telegram Photographer Jed Carlson when the two met eyes over the lens of Carlson's camera near the Superior Landfill on Moccasin Mike Road in Superior on Tuesday.

After watching the young bear for some time, Carlson backed up his car to get a better view of the bear walking along a fence line. After looking down to review earlier shots, he looked to see the bear has crawled under the fence and was right up to the car window. After backing up the car and getting his shaky hands under control, Carlson managed to pull it together to take a few photos including the one to the right.

After a brief encounter with the Telegram photographer, the young bear, above, ran back into the woods across from the Superior Landfill.
