Paint Creek Campground in Cherokee National Forest closed over the weekend and will remain closed until the bear is captured and relocated.
More than one bear has been seen recently at the campground which rangers say is pretty common. However, the aggressive behavior is not. Park Rangers hope that since the park is now closed, the bear will find a new place to call home. In the meantime, rangers have set up a bear trap to capture and relocate the aggressive bear.
Rangers also say that people may be the reason the bear has called the campground home in the first place by not keeping campsites clean.
Rangers say the campground could be closed for just a couple of days or possibly weeks.
