Bear Strolls Through Downtown Virginia

Posted: Updated:

Danville, Va.-A bear took a stroll through downtown Danville, Virginia on Thursday.

The black bear was spotted in Danville early Thursday morning then moved into a wooded area and found its way to a tree.

Wildlife officials shot and tranquilized the 150 pound male bear.

Officials think the bear was looking for love.

“Usually they just keep moving. Well, it moved into the city area, why? This time of year is right before mating season for males, this is a fairly good size male bear, so it's movements through its territory it just ended up right here in downtown," said Wildlife Biologist Dan Lovelace.

The wayward bear will be released in a remote area.
