The Smoky Mountains play host to over 500 black bear, a few in the Park and the rest roaming the foothills around the orchards and campgrounds surrounding the reserve. It's not uncommon to see a bear around here, but if you do, keep your distance - what may appear as a cuddly fur ball, is actually 200-300 lbs. of wild animal, packing sharp teeth and claws.
Woodworkers carve Chainsaw Bears of
black bears freehand from memory out of a solid trunk of tree. Each artist has his or her technique, identifiable to those who collect them.
Here's a few more of the featured arts and crafts. . .
