I heard a weird noise outside when I was inside the garage. So I opened the garage door. My goat ran in, in a panic. I called the other one and she didn't come, which is out of the ordinary. I turned the corner of the house to see a large black bear about 30 ft from me! This was at 10 pm. I was shining it with the flashlight. I ran back in, got the dog and sent it after the bear. The bear slowly walked away and even stopped once to stare at me. Stood on its hind legs near a tree but didn't climb it. I finally called the dog back. The fence for the goat pen was torn down. I cannot find my doe! I took the 4 wheeler out around the property and didn't find her, but I did chase down the bear. It had circled around to the other side of the house. I have never shot a gun, but legal or not I wanted to kill this bear. I live just over the city limit line so I called the police to report a missing goat. I hope she's not dead, but chances are good that I won't get her back.
