Dash cam captures bear wandering through NC neighborhood

Several sightings of a large black bear put residents on alert

HOPE MILLS, N.C. — Police in Hope Mills, North Carolina are advising residents to be alert after several sightings of a large bear.

A large black bear was spotted in several areas around Hope Mills during the night of May 29. The bear was captured by the dashcam of a police cruiser on patrol. "My neighbor texted me a picture of the bear in my yard and said this is your house. That's how I found out," said Nicole O'Larry.

Police video was rolling when the bear climbed the fence surrounding Nicole's backyard. NC Wildlife says they will not be taking any action unless the bear becomes aggressive.
