SEBRING — A bear in a tree in the backyard of a DeSoto City residence Wednesday evening prompted a response from the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Scott Dressel said in this type of situation, the first thing they try to do is what is called “hazing” the bear and try to scare it away from a populated area. If it becomes a problem, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission can relocate it.
