The black bear above was spotted in spring 2017 on the bayou side of Riverview Lane near Green Acres in the unincorporated parish and photographed by Lana Bailey. The bear was climbing the fence at one of the houses and didn’t cause any damage. It slipped away before animal control authorities could arrive.
