A BEAR FOUND IN DOWNTOWN KNOXVILLE: “Police corralled a black bear early today in the Old City after it spent hours wandering around Knoxville. . . . Reports of the bear began coming into the E-911 Center a little after 10 p.m. Monday. The first caller said they had seen a bear near Rohm & Haas off Dale Avenue. The bear also was seen later in the Fort Sanders area, and then ambled down Summit Hill Drive to the Old City. Officers found the bear near the railroad tracks at Jackson Avenue and State Street.”

Sounds like something that might have happened 200 years ago. Shades of David Baron.
