LOUISA COUNTY, Va (WTVR) - One day after a black bear was captured in Henrico County's West End, a woman in Louisa sent us pictures of a black bear visiting her yard.

The woman said these pictures were taken in eastern Louisa County.

Here are some reminders about bears from the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries:

  • Respect the bear’s space.
  • If the bear is on or near your property, do not escalate the situation by approaching, crowding around, or chasing the bear. This also applies to bears that have climbed a tree.
  • The best thing you can do is leave it alone.
  • Bears are naturally afraid of humans and will look for escape routes.
