Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta SUMMER THRILL One of the great thrills of living in a mountain region is the occasional visit of a black bear. Tliis writer after a long day of Herald business in various centres in British Col-, unibia stopped on a sidcroad near Elkforcl B.C. to take a few minutes break in a shady spot. Trie weather being hot, the driver left his car win- dows open, and after taking the customary 40 winks, was rudely awakened by the hot breath nf a black bear stand- ing against the- side of the car looking in the open window. It was a draw to decide who was the more surprised but reaction was faster on the part of Vern Dccoux who in less than one second had the window up, car started and was rolling down the road. After collecting his wits the driver turned around and shot a picture of the hear who was nonchalantly feasting on green grass.
