Lately we've heard all these stories about bears and strange animals being spotted in local areas not too far from here.

According to The News Times, a bear was recently spotted here in Brookfield this past weeekend on Saturday. Resident
Theresa Tate looked out her window to figure out why her dogs were barking and making so much noise around 6pm on Saturday at her house on
 Pasture Lane home just off Secor Road.

The bear reportedly started to walk away very quickly after she was able to take a picture, as the bear heard the camera shot click sound. Tate says that the bear looked as though it weighed around 180 pounds.

Do ya think he could have used a hug?
