UPDATE (Dec. 7, 2016, 1:55 p.m.): The black bear is free!

Barnes shared that the bear is no longer underneath his home. Hopefully this is the last time he has to deal with the bear again.


A large black bear was discovered under the home of a man in Wofford Heights.

Eric Barnes called 23ABC News and said that he discovered what he said was a 400-500 pound black bear under his home. 

This bear apparently has been under his home before.
