PORT ALLEN - Residents in a Port Allen neighborhood were forced to stay inside their homes Wednesday evening while a bear roamed around their neighborhood.

A WBRZ viewer called the station to report the news of the bear in Blanchard Estates on Bohne Road.

Lisa West posted a video to Facebook of the bear sauntering through her backyard. 

"I've been here almost 15 years and I've never seen a bear," West said in the video. "Oh, wow that ain't no freaking cub!"

Another resident, Kevin Lawrence, tells WBRZ he saw the bear cross the street near horse stalls on the property and "stirred up the horses."

The West Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office was called to investigate.

People in the area say the bear doesn't seem aggressive.
