At around 6:30 PM in Apalachin, at Andrew Carr's 11th birthday party a black bear wandered through the backyard. The kids were playing wiffle ball at home plate and noticed a large figure coming their way. Michael Carr, 16, of Endicott, NY thought quickly when all of his younger cousins ran up to the safety of the deck. He took the first snapshot from a distance of about 50 ft. His cousin, Matthew, took the second photo from the deck with his iPhone. No one was injured and everybody enjoyed the show, as the bear strode off into the woods. At one point that we missed, he stood on his hind legs and was about 7 feet tall.
