Exit the village and head northeast. You can find the three black bears standing by the edge of the lake. After killing them, go to Chanter Devons for a reward.
Note that there will also be 13 wolves in the area southwest of the bears if you accepted the Chantry quest A Last Keepsake.

- If you kill the bandits near the windmill, return to Lothering proper, and then head to the northeast corner of the map, the bears may spawn even if you have not taken this quest yet. Killing the bears first and taking the quest later may confuse the Quest Journal - the bear quest will not be there, but a map marker will indicate where they had been. Moreover, it may prevent the party from leaving Lothering[needs confirmation]. 1.03: the quest can be accepted after killing the bears without difficulty.
In the Quest Journal, this is a subsection of the "Chanter's Board" entry under the "Lothering" tab.
