Bears are searching for food like acorns. Bears are searching for food like acorns.
A Taylors woman says she spotted a black bear roaming in a neighborhood twice in the past four days.

Miranda Breazeale sent a photo of a black bear she observed in the area of Bulls Road and Locust Hill Road on Monday night.

We're told a bear had also been spotted in the same area of Greenville County Friday evening.

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources has some advice if you get unwanted visitors like this where you live.

DNR advises you to dispose of all garbage properly because bears are attracted to many different foods. You can help keep them away from outdoor garbage areas by using repellants including ammonia, disinfectants or even black pepper.

You should never feed bears.

DNR says you could consider an electric fence if bears are a regular nusiance, but this should only be done for a safety precaution for children and adults.
