After a few nights and early mornings of restless barking by their dog at their downtown home, John and Denise Winkler found out what was keeping their pooch upset. At about 6:30 a.m. Aug. 27, Denise opened the double doors from their bedroom to see, less than 25 feet away, this black bear feasting on leaves, hazelnuts and walnuts for breakfast. “The bear was never agitated or showed any signs of aggressiveness toward us, which was kind of nice,” John said.
