ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — Country singer Brett Eldredge has had another encounter with wildlife, this one involving a bear at a North Carolina home.
This week, Eldredge posted a video of the run-in after the bear entered a garage at a home in Asheville, North Carolina, as he was about to go on a hike, The Charlotte Observer reported.
“Opened the garage door to go on a hike and had a new friend waiting to say hello,” Eldredge wrote on Instagram.
The video shows the bear pulling the bin away from a garage wall, turning it over and trying to pry it open. Meanwhile, Eldredge and others were yelling to scare it off. The bear eventu- ally gave up, backing out of the garage without getting a meal.
In 2017, Eldredge posted video of a snake raising itself out of a toilet while he was staying at a resort in the
Bahamas to celebrate the new year. Eldredge did not say why he was in Asheville, but the singer is currently preparing for a tour which starts next week.
Bear encounters are becoming more common in western North Carolina, news outlets report. A sleeping teenager was seriously hurt in a bear attack this summer in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
