KnollsCam: Big black bear pads lightly through moss garden

Luckily it was before people showed up for Thomas Brass's public moss garden viewing that a big black bear walked through for a preview. Brass, the wildlife enthusiast whose videos are featured in the Knollscam series on Hendersonvillelightning.com, said the bear was a delicate-walking trespasser. Here's his account:

"We had the public viewing of our Serenity Moss Garden, Friday through Sunday in Haywood Knolls. The moss garden is on a hillside covering about 8,000 square feet. On Saturday morning at 10AM, just before the public showing, a huge black bear showed up  at the bottom of the moss garden while I was standing near the top of the garden doing some watering. I saw him and he saw me. He stopped and waited for me to walk about 30 feet down the path (in his direction) to my driveway. He then proceeded through the moss garden and up the path where I had been standing. Amazingly, he didn't step on a single flower in the garden (there are hundreds planted!)"
