Fireworks possibly scare bear up Cumberland County tree

(Amy Cutler/CBS North Carolina)

VANDER, N.C. (WNCN) — A bear was spotted up a tree outside of Vander in Cumberland County about 6:50 p.m.

The tree the bear went up is on Old Vander Road in Cumberland County just east of Fayetteville.

Homeowners say fireworks likely scared him up the tree.

They called the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and they told them to leave the bear alone — it would eventually come down on its own.

That’s what those homeowners are now hoping will happen.
