These bears were sighted in the back yard of a home in the Edgewood area of Bristol.
Lumbering through the wooded area it encountered a free meal at a bird feeder which subsequently
landed in the bird bath. The whole family joined in on the buffet. They were surprisingly uninhibited
by the photo opportunity and the few neighbors that gathered, anxious for a look at the rare visiters. The
bear family stayed until the food ran out and left looking for the next Labor Day feast in the surrounding
