Sugar Hills resident Aldo Sixtos took a cellphone video of the bear cub scrounging through garbage in the neighborhood. The family at first thought they were watching a large dog roam the backyard. Then it turned and showed its long nose. For about 40 minutes the family watched and shot video of the cub as it checked the trash and climbed a tree.
“It was the first time we’d seen a bear, you know, so we didn’t know if it was a little boy or a mom,” Sixtos told Channel 2 Action News. “We didn’t know.”
