Bear visits Roanoke County neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

This bear made a visit Sunday morning to a neighborhood near Hidden Valley High School in Roanoke County.

Paul Klockenbrink describes it as a beautiful young black bear.  Paul says he and his family are NOT worried about the bear but wanted to let neighbors know so they could keep trash indoors.  He believes the bear will find another place to visit if the food supply is taken away.

The bear starts out nice and calm and curious.  He was in the yard for about twenty minutes.  But, he eventually ended up destroying the bird feeders and getting into some trash.

He was spotted near Cynthia Road and Old Cave Spring Lane.
