The Union County Communications put out an APB on a large black bear sighted in Marshvegas early this morning, June 25th. Deputies attempted to find the bear in the dark but were unsuccessful until one steps into a large steaming pile of bear poop just north of town. While the deputy was attempting to clean his boot a cry came from a resident who had spotted the bear and was taking pictures of it with his cell phone. Officers scrambled into their cars and attempted a patrol car roundup trying to block the bear from all sides. The four legged bear quickly out-maneuvered the pursuing deputies and sprinted into the woods. At last report the officer with the soiled boot was not allowed back into the patrol car by his partner who described the odor of bear poop as "deadly".

I saw a picture tonight of the bear eating cat food on the loading dock of the old ice plant on Main Street in downtown Marshvegas.

The Marshvegas Bear is reportedly heading west according to the Union County Communications. The scanner was full of bear calls to Forest Hills Rd, Five Forks and Austin Grove Church Rd this morning. There was no word on the deputy who wasn't allowed back in the patrol car after stepping into bear poop yesterday. The deputies who come into Bo's early in the mornings were still laughing about it this morning but they wouldn't tell who it was.

Settle down people, it's just Margaret Bivens out inspecting the neighborhood. Y'all need some sensitivity training.
