Bears interrupt weather report on WNEP Channel 16

SCRANTON — A mama bear and three of her cubs were caught on camera on WNEP Channel 16 Monday night, seconds before a live weather report was about to begin.

It happened during the 11 p.m. newscast. The station has a landscaped outdoor area it calls "the backyard" with trees and a water fountain for its weather segments.

Meteorologist Kurt Aaron said he heard something behind him and when he turned around, a black bear was 10 feet away. He said he ran inside and did his report from indoors while a camera continued to show the bear family exploring.
