It's been 15 years ago but a buddy that lived in Eagleville (outside Murfreesboro) took pics of a bear while out walking his property.

Dang, I thought it was the rattlesnakes TWRA were stocking that killed the bears-even though they stocked the snakes to kill the turkeys. Or was it the hogs?

My wife swears up and down she saw one on her way to work one evening 2 years ago.This would be on the outskirts of the Hatchie Bottom going towards Brownsville on the back roads.I don't have a doubt in my mind that it was a bear she saw.

Saw one in Camden (Benton County) back in the mid-80's..... around June 4th. We were returning from the grocery with my little brothers birthday cake.... TWRA, LEO's, & onlookers' cars lined both sides of our street. Didn't know what was going on at first. We were on the side porch looking at the TWRA officers beating the bushes in the neighbors backyard. They had tranq. guns trying get a shot on it to subdue the black bear.... it came busting out of the bushes not 40 yards from where we were standing and right on past the TWRA guys and the cattle trailer they had brought in to haul it off in..... people were running for their lives when that bear came bolting across the street.... this all happened in the actual town, maybe a mile to mile & half from the square!!
