A man ran into a bit of a surprise on Tuesday in Charlottesville.
In the wooded area between Agnor Hurt Elementary School and some offices a black bear was rummaging through trash. After inspecting the trash, it meandered back into the woods.
The bear was spotted ten minutes after five.
Shenandoah National Park has been dealing with increased bear activity and more people seem to be spotting bears in Central Virginia.
