I was out at a work site with Ken in the Markham area and stumbled across some interesting tracks. Up north in the Canadian shield I wouldn't have hesitated to call these bear tracks, but down this far south in Southern Ontario I was shocked to see such a thing! After some examination we both came to the conclusion that indeed these are the tracks of a black bear. You can see all five toes register and the overall shape of the track is flat bottomed. A really cool find, and certainly unexpected!
Black Bear track!
Note the characteristic pigeon-toed walk with the toes pointed inwards
