Last month, a black bear made history by wandering into Indiana, a state the species hasn't called home in 140 years. But if wildlife officials have their way, bears will never be seen there again.
In early June, folks in the area began reporting that they'd seen a creature no one alive today had ever come across in the wild (at least in Indiana): a lone black bear. The animal, once found in forests throughout North America, is believed to have crossed the state's border for the first time since being driven out in the 1870s.
"That was the most graceful - he was the most graceful thing I've ever seen," one resident told FOX 32 News. "I've been hoping to see that bear for a month."
