Residents in a southern Wisconsin neighborhood have reported a string of encounters with a big furry visitor.

A large black bear has become the talk of the community in Waunakee.

It was seen making stops in several backyards over the weekend.

One person recorded the bear climbing on a swing set and eating the contents of a bird feeder.

Wildlife experts say that in most cases, bears like this one are just passing through an area and removing them from a neighborhood is considered a last resort.
