A bear in my area? It's pawsible: experts share what to do

Bears have been spotted recently in suburbs of Baltimore, Frederick and Howard counties. Most recently, a bear was spotted at Lake Elkhorn in Columbia. A resident of Columbia's Owen Brown community shared a video with 11 News. She said the black bear was in her yard for 15 minutes on June 5, and neighbors saw it swim across the lake from the woods. A bear was also seen in Cockeysville on June 2, and there have been several other sightings. "There's all kinds of things out here, but we're not going to live in fear. We just have to learn where we are. There's something going on in nature, in the area where humans are," said resident Thavi Bradford.
