    Several years ago I had a mama black bear in three babies in my yard in Trussville/Argo. She must’ve been moving through because they were only there for a few days

    Shouldn’t they be searching for criminals instead of a bear? Leave the bear alone and he won’t bother you.

    If you see it, simply go inside. They are not going to attack you unless provoked. By nature, they want to be left alone. Sounds like a male moving thru.

    Oh, it’s Center Point so it’s gotta be a “Black” bear huh?

    not even CenterPoint ,it’s really Clay and Pinson , they have that all wrong.

    Well compared to being shot , robbed , or car jacked in Center Point , Id say the damn bear is more in danger.

    Seriously tho , dont mess w or try 2 feed the damn bear.

    It’s just a black bear. If you’ve ever been tent camping in the smokies or fishing there in the foothills you’ve probably seen one. They won’t attack unless cornered or provoked while their babies are with them. Just go inside and get away from it. No biggie

    Really just leave the bear alone :/ I used to live up north bears are everywhere they will leave you alone if you leave them alone especially black bears

    We can’t have anything. Leave the damn bear alone and let it live. Sad these animals are just trying to survive in this over populating world, and we’ve got to bother them.

    They used to be hear. In Florida, I know the panhadle black bears were said to be common

    Amy Nesbitt Brackett I would feel more threatened driving thru Center Point than a bear encounter, unfortunately. Black bears routinely roam thru parts of Tennessee and North Carolina without harm. Just have to be smart and respect the animal and their space.

    Leave the damn bear alone and it won’t hurt anything. And keep your trash cans inside.

    Unfortunately it’s not safe for it to move into center point. If it would stay in the hills of Pinson, Palmerdale, Clay it wouldn’t be a big deal

    Those homes have been there since the 1960’s. The bear population is growing, and young males wander a long way looking for girlfriends. This behavior is typical of bears.

    Hopefully the bear doesn’t decide to head on over to Carrington

    For many years I lived on a dead end on Oak Drive in Pinson. The property butted up to the Penney property (480 acres). Bears use to eat out of our compost pit regularly. That was 1979 until I moved in 1997. Got a few out here in Remlap now. This is nothing new.

    So…. I should NOT have stripped naked and coated my body with honey last night while meandering through Centerpoint?
    Now I feel kinda stupid.
    Guess I best do that in Trussville just to play it safe.

    It’s probably in Pinson,Clay or Trussville by now.If it shows up over here in the woods I have leftover fried fish it can snack on while it waits for the authorities.Which I am sure will either scare it away again or try to murder it.
    Please don’t kill the bear.

    Why do you have to warn people not to go near the bear? If they go near the bear on purpose they deserve whatever happens to them. Stupid!!!

    Leave the bear alone. We’ve taken over their habitats by all the unnecessary building when there are tons of ghost buildings around. Our first order from God was to take care of the animals and the earth. So do it!

    Don’t approach the animal! Duh! That’s like having to put the sign on the lawnmower “don’t stick hand under mower when it is running”. Some people never learn!

    Yaw wouldn’t be acting all crazy like this if it was a white bear. Just sayin.
