Black Bear Caught On Tape In Backyard

A Fleming County couple received a surprise visitor in their backyard today. A black bear wandered onto their property.

The couple lives in the Maxey Flat area. They sent 27NEWSFIRST home video of the bear. At first, it was just sitting in the yard, then the animal decided to check out the garbage can.

The couple tells us the local game warden told them to ignore the bear and it should go away.
