Police say persistent bear in East Tennessee trapped with chocolate candies

31 Aug

M&Ms. So good, they even attract bears!Authorities say a trap set with chocolate M&Ms caught a persistent bear that had been repeatedly showing up outside homes in Townsend trying get into garbage cans.

Townsend Police Chief Ron Suttles told The Knoxville News Sentinel that the bear wandered into the trap on Friday afternoon and he was pretty sure it was the same bear that had been frightening people in Sevier County.

Officials from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency will be coming to get the bear and release it in the Cherokee National Forest.

Suttles said people in the area could see more bears this fall because the animals are ranging farther than normal from their feeding grounds in the forest.
