The cub didn’t appear too phased by the sheriff’s vehicles that began to follow him on both sides of the street. Authorities say the deputies followed the cub for about an hour until he headed back toward open space.
Bear cubs are usually accompanied by their mothers, and it’s unclear where this cub’s mother was at the time of the cub’s stroll.
