If that thing had slapped the window, it would have been in here. This sow was small, maybe 200 pounds at most. The cub was tiny, young of the year.
Hey Byron no doubt you of all people know what a bear looks like especially when he's looking through the widow at you. Just thought the angle of it walking away gave the appearence of a big "painter". You could see a cat if you wanted too.
