What would you do? Freak out, grab a gun, call the local wildlife department or....
Chances are, if he can't get into your garbage, he or she will eventually go away.
We have possums, wood chucks, skunks, raccoons, the occasional deer, the occasional fox. No bears, though.
As you backup to State Land, they won't do anything unless he gets aggressive or really pesky. He looks young, probably not even a year old, black bears can stay with their Mama's nursing for 2 or 3 years. I'd be more afraid of her. Keep an eye out for her, as she is really dangerous. I'd call DNR again, if you see HER. They would relocate the entire family, if she's around, I'm guessing. NOTHING more dangerous than a Mama Bear with cubs. But, damn, he IS cute! DON'T FEED HIM. (I'm guessing you know this.)
I LOVE the Yupper!
I hope he goes back into the State Land. I'd hate to see anything happen to him.
