Black bears cause trouble in WythevilleI like that "... it's to be expected" comment. Like we expect to have a wild, growling black bear hand us the hose when we pull up to the pump at the local Citgo.

All over Southwest Virginia, and even in Wytheville, bear sightings have been on the rise. Recently, a black bear has been spotted in the Dillon's IGA parking lot, near Pine Ridge and in the dumpster of the Kangaroo gas station on Fourth Street.
According to Bill Bassinger, a wildlife biologist with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, it's to be expected. (link)
Anyway, you guys up north deal with derelicts and long-haired smelly peaceniks. We deal with God's other fuzzy ... smelly ... creatures.
Come to think of it, I think I'd rather deal with the bears.
