We had one in our yard one time tearing into a garbage bag that was inside a big garbage can. My wife grabbed the video camera and I grabbed a big stick and we went out on the deck to watch it, but we stayed pretty far away.
Normally our dogs, a husky and a hound dog, would go berserk if a squirrel, a raccoon, a herd of deer, or an opossum was in the yard. When the bear was there they simply looked at me like "so what are you going to do about that?"
