We have shared a number of wildlife videos over the past few months. Most of the videos were shot in Berkshire County. As we mentioned in a previous post, the summer of 2021 in the Berkshires was dubbed the “Summer of Bear”. There have been plenty of videos of bears either roaming around, foraging for food, climbing trees, scratching their backs, and even showing curiosity as they approached decks and porches. These videos were shared on many of Berkshire County’s local Facebook group pages.
Another video recently shared on Facebook shows an apparently injured black bear eating some tall bush blueberries in the city of Berkshire County, Peru, and then roaming into the woods. In the video you can see where the bear has spots and missing fur. Also, he has great damage to his snout as it looks like his nose has been ripped off. According to the description in the video, the bear is said to have fought another male bear. According to the Mass Dept of Fish & Wildlife, the injured bear will most likely survive. You can check out this video below.
Some of the comments on the video are included below:
-Impressive. If we haven’t seen that, we forget what is really going on out there. Poor thing.
– Terribly big bear can’t imagine how big the other bear was that challenged him.
-I wouldn’t want to meet him alone in the woods.
