Knott County family has bear scare

A Knott County family says a bear has been making repeat visits to their backyard and they have the video to prove it.

Chanda Amburgey says she shot video of the bear Tuesday morning at her home in the Carr Fork Lake area. She says a bag of garbage was missing from her garbage cans when she came home Monday morning.

Amburgey tells us her family woke up Tuesday morning to the sound of the bear getting into their garbage cans.

Amburgey says the bear wouldn't leave when they made noise, so eventually her father-in-law had to pull his car into the driveway to scare the bear away.
