Bear spotted walking past Fairfax County playground

A young bear wandered past a playground and garden in Vienna on Monday. The sighting was reported to police at about 1 p.m. on Trap Road. No humans came close to the bear.

This is the time of year when young bears leave their mothers to fend for themselves. Many wander into populated areas.

This was not the first bear sighting in our region. Several have been spotted in Montgomery County and at least two in Fairfax County.
