Bear caught on camera destroying Christmas display in Fairfax County​

Melissa Ashby says she and her neighbors had noticed some inflatable holiday displays were slashed over the last few days.



On Thursday morning, she found her Santa inside a helicopter display deflated and ruined.

Ashby checked her surveillance camera and saw it was the work of a bear.

"Honestly, when he turned around and actually went after the front and went after it twice it was kind of scary," Ashby said.

Fairfax County and Virginia wildlife officials say neighbors in the Fairfax Station area reported bear sightings in November.

According to experts, bears are more curious than dangerous and are often attracted by unsecured trash and birdseed.

I'm not surprised to learn that there are bears in the Fairfax Station area -- it's a more rural area of the county although close to the county's main seat, the City of Fairfax -- with larger homes on larger properties and loads of woods surrounding everything. Driving around there feels positively bucolic compared to most of the rest of the county.
