PETERSBURG, Va. (WTVR) — For the second time in two days a bear has been spotted in Petersburg.
Neighbors living in a mobile home park near I-95 first saw the bear on Wednesday.
Folks said they were stunned when the animal climbed on top of one trailer to eat.
“You never see a bear in Petersburg,” said Laura Smyth. “He came out and stared at everybody, until I got too close, and then he smacked the trailer to tell me to get away.”
Smyth said that eventually the bear got spooked, so he climbed up a tree and stayed put until dark.
However, neighbors said that when they woke up Thursday morning the bear was gone.
