GA Bear Causes Commotion

A Dahlonega, Georgia couple got quite a shock Sunday morning (7/31) when they encountered a huge black bear in their front yard.

The bear took refuge for several hours in a tree in the Jarrad's front yard.

The big bear was searching for some food when it lumbered onto the Jarrard's property early Sunday morning (7/31) only to be chased up a tree by a protective family dog.

The bear remained in its perch for several hours causing quite a commotion on the usually quit block.

The Jarrad's called for help, but they couldn't get anyone to come out to capture the animal.

They tried to lure the adult bear down with food and water, but it would not budge from the branch it clung to.

The Jarrard's did finally clear out when the bear showed no signs of coming down and when the animal saw the coast was clear and bolted.
