Keeping their distance
Although it may have come as a surprise to some, the bear sighting in Oak Ridge was not entirely out of the blue. Bears are known to visit certain areas across North America from time to time, as they live in the surrounding woodland.
The places where ursine visits are not uncommon, and the people living there know how to handle it. The occupants of Oak Ridge knew that they needed to be cautious now that a bear was in their town and follow the protocol; however, as they looked at the animal from afar, they wondered why it was rearing up on its hind legs.
