Video: Bear Makes a Run Through Fox Mill Estates

A black bear made a visit to Herndon’s Fox Mill Estates Thursday morning.

Check it out as he explores Holkein Drive near Stratton Woods Park.

Thanks to resident Tiffany Ford for posting on the Fox Mill Estates’ Facebook page.

There are usually several bear sightings a season in this part of Fairfax County, especially in summer breeding season. County wildlife experts say to make sure garbage cans are secure to avoid bears looking for food. And keep a respectful distance if you see one.
