    I live in the country, in a neighborhood of about 20 houses pretty spread apart.

    A bear has entered the neighborhood and has everyone talking.

    What would be the protocol if it enters my yard?

    You can't fire a gun in my state within 500 yards of a residence. It's a major penalty if you do.

    I don't hunt, but do practice archery and have some razor arrowheads that probably could take out a typical black bear -- and there are lots of little kids and old ladies on my street who probably need protecting -- but that seems a bit needless, no?

    Calling the DEC or whatever would take forever for them to come.

    Should I just live and let live?

    A serious answer for a change- call your local Dept. of Fish & Wildlife, and let them know you have a bear in your neighborhood. Most DFW's will set a bear trap and come check on it. When they catch the bear, they haul it off to the wilderness where it doesn't bother humans anymore.

    I used to have a black bear come around just to fuck with my grill.
    Now the grill is in the garage.

    Ask @Dream Theater's neighbors what the protocol was when he moved in.

    I have a pretty sweet gray fox that comes around my house. Keeps the mice and rats from nesting in the Areca Palms I hope.

    Gomez's way works the best. Shoot it clean and you have a nice rug for in front of the fireplace.
