Denise Cummings, of Oval, submitted this photo of a black bear, taken by her daughter-in-law, Jessica, on June 13. Josh and Jessica Cummings, who live in St. Petersburg, Fla., and other family members were relaxing at Denise’s home when the bear wandered by. “Everyone was sitting outside in lawn chairs, visiting (and) getting ready for dinner when, out of nowhere, this black bear was spotted in the parking lot of the Oval telephone company, about 7 feet away,” Jessica wrote in an email. “The only thing separating us from the bear was the chainlink fence. Although we were all panicked, I believe that our little black buddy was more concerned with getting out of sight than eating us all.” The bear ran toward Route 44, crossed into a neighbor’s back yard, ate some garbage, then disappeared into a corn field, she said. “His speed was very impressive,” wrote Jessica, who originally is from Nippenose Valley. “It was definitely something you don’t see in Oval every day.”
