I live in Venango county , Oil City . Went out on my bike a week ago . My ride took me through the old Pennzoil lower tank farm. I then went up the road at the old main gate , and up the draw. They were timbering up there, lots of tops every where. It was pretty rough going , as all the tops were every where , and my ride became a crawl over downed trees. I had just crested one of these trees[ took me 15 minutes to get over it] AND LOKED UP and saw 4 black things scrambling up a tree about 75 yards in front of me. I thought for a second "what are those things , looks like ???' YES 4 bear cubs. And I'm in an area that I only have a 8 to 12 yard open view in any direction. A little sceary, for sure . I grabed a long sturdy stick and started banging on any thing withen reach, and yelling . I had top get to some better ground so I assended a ridge about 50 yards up , and it was not much better ground as the timbering was going on up there too.
I never saw the MAMA'S but it was a little hairy for a bit. So beware , there's BEAR IN THEM WOODS.
