WLOS: Wildlife officials say trend of bears roaming in neighborhoods is on the rise


Report by Mike Mason

Wildlife officials are putting parts of Buncombe County on high bear alert tonight. They say black bears are roaming residential neighborhoods now more than ever, so we wanted to know why this is happening. We’ve all heard about the times black bears have been seen in Downtown Asheville and many feel it’s just a part of living in the mountains. But this year wildlife officials say it’s a real problem and bears are getting bolder than ever.
