My favorite place for seeing black bears is the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.  When visiting the Tahquamenon Falls area it is not uncommon to have a mother bear cross the road with her little ones.  The reference for “Blues Brothers” comes from the Oswald Bear Ranch in Newberry.  It is a great place for   seeing bears of all shapes and sizes.  These two little guys had been orphaned and were newcomers to the ranch when I was there.  Today they are much bigger characters. 

Bears do love blueberries.  In fact, the late summer months provides bears with a variety of berry type fruit.  Blackberries, serviceberries, wild raspberries are in addition to the low bush and high bush blueberries bears like to eat.
