SOUTHAVEN, MS (WMC-TV) - North Mississippi is home to numerous types of wildlife, but every so often, residents catch a glimpse of some out of the ordinary creatures.
"We've got raccoons. We've got opossum. We've seen fox," Horn Lake resident Jacki Gregory said. "I've had a turtle come strolling across to go to the lake."
On Sunday, Gregory crossed paths with a larger, more unusual mammal in her own backyard.
"Happened like that," she said. "And sure enough I had seen a little black bear running and it ran all the way back to the back of our property and disappeared into the next woods behind our property."
