ASHEVILLE, N.C. – It’s an incredible site for neighbors in an Asheville condominium complex — six bears all in one tree.

Elaine Hyatt sent WLOS-TV some photos. You can see some of the cubs on the ground, around a tree, but then in subsequent pictures you see the cubs climbing into higher branches.

Neighbors said bears in the neighborhood are a common site.

“They come around so often we know not to approach them not to feed them or set out bird food this mother has been around for several years and she’s brought five of her offspring,” Hyatt said.
