Deputies who are employed by the Martin County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) in Florida were surprised as well as scared when a male black bear climbed on a tree outside of the investigations division on Monday night. The deputies who witnessed the incident of the black bear who entered the area where the police station is located went through the parking lot called officials of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to remove the bear away from the building. The wildlife officials managed to get the bear away from the building safe and sound. Since it is summer season, more bears will be making more visits to the populated areas in the cities since due to the lack of food in the woods where bears call home is vanishing.

That is true since you have mentioned that bears are losing their places to eat due to droughts and lack of food.

I agree with you that the bear did not mean any harm walking toward a police station at night.

@Deepizzaguy He was probably looking for food.

The officials must have used a spotlight on the bear to guide him away from the building.

That bear is lucky that he didn't get locked up.

It's really sad that we just keep encroaching on their home areas. Maybe they should make more and more land off limits. But greed usually wins in the end.

You have a good point that bears should have their own areas to live in the woods.
