Frederick man finds bear in his front yard

A Frederick man says he was heading out to get groceries from his van over the weekend when he discovered a "beary" big surprise in his yard!

Ross Gandell tells FOX 5 he saw a bear moseying around outside of his home, which is located in the hills near Gambrill State Park, at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. 

Gandell says he had to chase the bear back into the woods to get him to leave his property.

He and the bear were both unharmed during their chance encounter.
