A North Jackson Family got some unexpected entertainment Tuesday night as a bear visited the neighborhood.

Jaemi Stamm and her husband Jesse spotted the black bear standing on the porch with its big paws hanging over the railing of a neighbor's home at around 10:30 p.m.

The couple's children expressed amazement looking through a window as the bear wandered around the porch, investigating furniture and other items.

North Jackson Police say they sent an officer out to investigate a bear sighting in the area of Route 45 and Mahoning Avenue at around 10:30, but couldn't find the animal.
