Residents of a Cobb County neighborhood are worried after a bear was spotted in the area.

Several people in the Embry Lane area of Marietta have seen a black bear rummaging through garbage cans, tipping over bird baths and even enjoying the shade on one home’s porch.

It didn’t take a Channel 2 crew long to catch up with the bear.

DNR officials told Channel 2’s Ross Cavitt that they do not plan to trap the bear. Officials said they won’t step in unless the bear gets in trouble.

They said the bear will eventually move on if residents put away any food or garbage that they usually keep outside.
