As soon as she moved to New Hampshire from Florida with her fiancé, Andre Roy, her Grout Farm Road neighbor started telling them the backyard bird feeder pole was being bent by a bear.
On Wednesday around 4:30 p.m., Roy was standing on the patio talking on the phone when he spotted the black bear on its hind legs hugging a tree.
"The bear started slowly coming to the bird feeder, gets on his hind legs and is getting ready to bend the pole, so Andre opened the door and looked out and that bear just darted out back of the woods again," Fowler said. "Dirt was flying everywhere. He said he'd never seen a bear move so fast."
Fowler said she is not scared one bit by the bear, although for now she has pulled her bird feeders inside.
"I love wildlife and there is nothing like this back home, and I enjoy seeing this," Fowler said.
