(WXIA) A family of bears is wandering around a neighborhood in the Johns Creek and Suwanee areas.
Of course, it's not unheard of for bears to venture into residential areas of metro Atlanta, looking for food. But it's never happened in this neighborhood, and it's causing more excitement than concern or fear.
"It's amazing," said Rob Moravek, who lives in the Shakerag Farms subdivision off of Kemp and McGinnis Ferry roads near the Chattahoochee River in Forsyth County.
Late Wednesday afternoon, the bears appeared in a field of trees and tall grass next to Shakerag Farms.
