Hare Bay man confronted by a black bear while salmon fishing

The Hare Bay angler was salmon fishing in the area of the old bridge on Traverse Brook, approximately two kilometers from the main road, along the old highway, with a group of friends on Sunday evening. After a couple hours of fishing, his friends moved on from the area, but Davis decided to make one last attempt at landing a salmon before angling closed for the day and darkness set in.

He was fishing away when heard a trotting noise in the water. Davis thought it was a fisheries officer, coming to inform him that the time had come to end angling for the evening. “I turn around and five feet away from me is a black bear staring at me,” he said. “He was close enough to hit him with my dip net.”
