SIMPSONVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A black bear was seen at 10:30 a.m. near the Fox Run neighborhood in Simpsonville, SC.

Matt, a Simpsonville resident who asked his last name to be kept private, spotted the animal which he described as being around 250 pounds.

Matt said that he has lived in the area for 17 years and has never seen a bear before. Without wasting any time, he got in his car and followed the bear until it went into a ditch area.

Matt tried to report the case to the police but was transferred to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) in Columbia.
