The Winthrop Dragon

The Winthrop Dragon

It has become apparent that an epic battle occurred last night between the Winthrop Estate dragon and a black bear.  As I surveyed the grounds this morning I found the right side of the sculpted shrubbery to be torn away by a large animal.  Unfortunately I have a feeling that our friend didn’t put up much of a fight; nonetheless we’re happy that most of him survived the assault.  The black bear on the other hand escaped unscathed and continued to raid the neighbor’s trash.  No need to worry though, the dragon may have had trouble with the local wildlife but the bears living in the area have no quarrel with humans.  According to the Audubon Society, no bear-human interaction in Lenox has resulted in injury, only tipped trash barrels.  For more information on the wildlife in Berkshire county please visit the Audubon Society’s website at:
