A black bear was spotted on security footage walking through an acreage just outside of Josephburg.

Mairin Innes got a call from her son at 6 a.m. -- she says he had gotten a notification of movement detected on their home security system. When he opened the video, he saw a black bear stroll from their backyard, through their driveway, and onto the road ahead.

Innes and her family were inside, unknowing of the bear.

"I think three years ago there were some bear droppings outside in the front yard, but no sightings of an actual bear."

A bear and her cub were also spotted in Elk Island National Park over the weekend.
