    According to Bear Grylls, throw your backpack at the bear, the scent will likely keep them busy and allow you enough time to make a run for it.

    PS: I've not seen him prove this point in person.

    This story is from last year but it remains one of my favorite woman/bear/dog stories:

    Alaska woman punches bear in nose to save dog
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Anyway weird that the mother and cubs were on the porch acting so aggressively... black bears are usually afraid of humans.

    I think they're just getting more and more accustomed to our presence.. and our garbage.. There are so many seasonal campgrounds in northern NH nowadays [I hate those places.. whatever happened to REAL camping?]--- I imagine there's so much more food scrap accumulation, etc from that alone..

    Yeah, I was considering that too, with the campgrounds and other things going on.

    Three words: Zombie Junkie Bear!

    *SHRIEK, runs away*
    "Hey Capa -- We're only stardust." ~ "Sunshine"

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    You can bet the Syfy network will capitalize on this idea & create a film trilogy.
