BEARS In APPOMATTOX; SQUIRREL IN TAMPA
Every year we hear the reports, and this year is no exception. Black bears are back in the neighborhoods of Central Virginia.
Several residents in Appomattox have spotted bears, including Diane Austin. She was in her car and able to snap a few pictures of a mama bear helping her cubs across the road. She shared the pics with our media partners at ABC 13 and we've posted one here, circling the bears...

If you see a bear in your yard, call Animal Control and and just leave it alone. Don’t provoke it.
SQUIRREL POSTPONES TEST
Students at three Tampa, Florida schools caught a break on a major test, thanks to a squirrel that ran across a main power line.
The power line touched a grounded pole and blew out power at the three schools where students were taking the the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT).
700 residents in the area also lost power. Testing was postponed for the day. Unfortunately, the squirrel did not survive. SOURCE: WTSP-TV
