A Rochester resident stumbled into a black bear while kayaking on Hemlock Lake, New York, on Saturday, July 16. Matthew Garrity posted on his Facebook page the video of a bear swimming right in front of him. The animal didn’t seem bothered by his orange kayak, which was close enough that the footage captured sounds that appear to be the bear’s breathing.Reports of black bears are three times higher this summer than in previous years in upstate New York, according to news reports.
