Driver spots bear cub in Chapel Hill
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (WTVD) -- A black bear sighting has people in one Triangle neighborhood on alert.
Someone spotted the animal Wednesday morning near the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Eubanks Road in northern Chapel Hill.
A man says he saw a cub, but kept driving. No one else spotted the animal.
Neighbors told ABC11 they've had bear sightings before in the heavily wooded area.
Wildlife officials say it's not uncommon to see bears. They say small black bears are not really aggressive. However, they warn people to stay away and not to feed them, and to secure their trash.
They do say that sometimes younger bears wander away at night.
