Stephen’s neighbor may have seen a bear near Oakwood Avenue and S Street:
She said she thought she was seeing stuff at first, because she couldn’t believe it was a bear, but then she got a better look as it moved from near the corner, past my house, and then jump the fence at the empty brick store front nearby.
I suppose it’s possible because bears are seen from time to time in the far west end of Richmond, and the Oakwood area of Church Hill is really close to a lot of woods and a stream that run through and around the cemeteries. […]
Are there any other reports of bear sightings around here in recent history?
