STAUNTON,Va. (WHSV) -- An unexpected trio of bears made an appearance at Mary Baldwin College Sunday night.
Kayla Hewett was taking a study break with a few friends outside the library when she saw three black shadows on a hill.
When she realized they were bears, she called police who said to leave the bears alone, but Hewett said this made her nervous.
"The bears were running up and down the hills and you could actually see students walking past them, not even noticing that they were there. It was just three cubs, but their mother had been looking for them. We were just concerned that if the mother came she would have mauled or attacked one of us because she was looking for her cubs," said Hewett.
She said everyone just left the bears alone to make their way off campus by themselves actually shutting down North Coalter Street.
