Nature center gives presentation on urban bears.

“It depends on what the bear’s doing,” Bosell said. “Typically, we should always try to scare the bear out of the area so he has that negative influence coming into urban environments. When people just go into their house and shut the door, they’re basically telling the bear he can have the territory. The bears are learning that behavior, they’re like, ‘People always run away so I can just do whatever I want.’ So we really need to stand up and scare them out of the area.”

"This thing ... it’s just looking at us. I could have pet the dang thing [it was so close]," Ishol, who estimated the big cat was even taller than his 5-foot-8 frame, told Fox News. "We both reacted. I went out to the door and my wife went to the opposite side of the garage, where it's locked."
