Last Fall along with another photographer, I went to a spot nw of Coldwater, the Matchedash Bay Trail. There is a news report of a Waubashene man being attacked by a black bear near the Kinnear Sideroad and Lawson Line. This right by the trail area. He was mauled and will require plastic surgery to help heal his injured legs.
At the time we walked in on the trail there was a notice that bears had been reported on the trail recently. I am glad I did not meet any bears last fall, and I am very sorry that Mr. Marois did.
Sometimes it is easy to forget with all the houses being built in this area (we are 90 minutes from Toronto) that we live in a wild area and wildlife live here, some of it not always friendly.
