The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office was part of an unusual capture on Wednesday.

They assisted the Priceville Police Department when they received a call from a resident about a black bear eating out of their garbage. The caller felt, “…he/she would be more comfortable at a different establishment.”

According to the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, deputies and Priceville PF maintained a visual on the bear until Alabama Game & Fish arrived and took over.

The bear was returned to his natural habitat.
