On March 3, 2010, an unexpected and out of the ordinary visitor arrived at the edge of the Antiochian Village property. A small black bear was sighted in a tree. A Game Comissioner was called in. He sedated the bear and gave it a mask to protect its eyes and mouth while being moved.

The Game Comissioner confirmed that this is out of the ordinary. After examination, it is clear that this young bear is ill and thin. He came out of hibernation early, and finding no food, he tried to locate some in the neighbor's garbage.

The Game Commission assured Mother Alexandra that sleeping beauty will be medicated, fed, and released somewhere good for bears.

Bears will continue to increase in number at Antiochian Village because the resorts south of them are trapping all of their bears, driving them up the highway, and dumping them out.   How do I know this?  While buying coffee in Sheetz, this guy asked if I wanted to see a 300 lb black bear in the back of his truck. He explained that he contracts with Nemacolin Woodlands and Seven Springs Resort to trap their bears.  (Apparently golfers don’t like bears with them on the golf course.)  After trapping them, he drives them north and releases them.   Shocked

Our Metropolis clergy were having a retreat at AV when this happened.  Fortunately, or unfortunately, we didn't see/interact with the bear.

Poor little creature! He must be Orthodox- it looks like its been a rough Lent for him.
