Black Bears


Southern Serenity is located in a neighborhood called Black Bear Falls.  Apparently a bear has been sighted recently in the neighborhood, which means the area is living up to the name!  Because of this a bear trap has been located in the higher elevations of the neighborhood.

It seems this will have a positive outcome.  It is sad that the bear habitat is disturbed by people, but I’m glad the bear will be relocated so it doesn’t get hurt, or get too used to humans, which can lead to other problems.

I’m not sure what agency is working on this, but I do know there is a bear rescue in Townsend, http://www.appalachianbearrescue.org/index.htm.  I’m so glad they can help the bears.
