not to make fun of you, but a chihuahua, if only that was true. 3X a chihuahua. they have large ears, so they can hear things and yap more. if bears were that size, i wouldnt worry bout them. black bear's can get large. way more than 240lbs. i got a friend up north, i will ask him, about it. E has a mother bear, that will lay on his porch, while he is sitting there. i seen the pictures. he dont pet her, but she trust em enough, to do this. i will see if i can copy the pictures.
