ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- It isn't something you see every day, but a black bear decided to spend the weekend in the City of Alpharetta.
It was the talk of the town.
"Yeah, I was a little surprised," said Chris Rubio, who saw the bear.
"It was the last thing we expected to see on the way home from dinner," said his wife Susan.
The Rubios and their two children, Joseph and Brooke, were on their way home from dinner Friday night when they, along with many others, saw the bear roaming around the busy intersection of Windward Parkway and Deerfield Parkway.
"And then she (Susan) said 'a bear, a bear,' and then we kind of saw him and then he started running," Rubio said. "We drove along side of him and we started taking pictures."
Alpharetta Police said there have been a number of sightings all weekend. Officers who saw the bear said it was a young cub.
