CHESNEE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An unsuspecting visitor that caused quite the scene in one Upstate neighborhood has returned to the forest.

A homeowner in Chesnee said a bear was camping out in his backyard located on Beaverdam Drive.

He said the bear had been the center of several photo shoots. At one point, he said his street was filled with cars of interested neighbors wanting to see the bear hiding out in a tree in his backyard.

The homeowner said he called DNR because they are concerned with the safety of their kids and their pets, but DNR said the bear should not be aggressive and will hopefully go back to where it came from when it gets dark. They said if the bear was not gone by then, they would call officials to take care of it.

The homeowner said Wednesday morning that the bear had climbed down from the tree and returned to the woods. The bear made its exit around 9 p.m. Tuesday.
