EASLEY, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Upstate man says he captured a mama bear and her cub hanging out in Easley on his trail camera.

The cub can be seen scratching itself on the night vision camera near Ireland Road, Al Saunders said.

The mama bear could not be seen very well in the footage, but Saunders said he caught the pair hanging out on June 10.

In the same week, a black bear was also seen camping out in a tree in a Chesnee neighborhood on June 6.
