Victoria Durant of 138 Pinewood Circle, Plum Branch, submitted this picture to the Messenger on Monday. She said, “I wanted to send in this picture of a bear standing in my front yard. My neighbor, Ms. Alice saw it first in her yard. She called and warned me about the bear in our neighborhood because I operate a home daycare.
Around noon is my usual time of taking the kids out for recess, but I took them out earlier today due to the warmer weather. I was able to get a picture of the bear from my front door before he ran into the bushes located to the side of the playground area.” If you spot a bear, call 911 and the dispatcher will direct you to the proper authorities.
