Minnesota man comes face-to-face with black bear
Mason Cavanaugh of Melrude kept his cool while an inquisitive black bear checked him out on a recent evening.
At first, Mason Cavanaugh thought the irritation on the back of his neck was another mosquito. The bugs had been bad that evening.
But when he reached around to slap the offender, he realized it was something else entirely.
"I felt something wet and furry," said Cavanaugh, 20, who lives with his parents in Melrude, just north of Cotton.
