Even Bears Want To Be Mermaids

Beachgoers and community members of the Outer Banks, North Carolina (located on the east coast of the United States) got quite a surprise this June when confronted with a furry ‘sea creature.’


When most people go to the coast, they are lucky to see a stray dolphin, maybe a pod if they are truly fortunate. Vacationers were stunned to learn an unusual and extra hairy swimmer was actually a black bear. 


In the spotlight in recent years from the titular series, Outer Banks, on Netflix, Dare County has more than just sweaty John Bs and Sarah Camerons running around. The show may spotlight hidden treasures, greedy fathers, and teenagers that never seem to have to go to school, but one thing it did not warn tourists and viewers about was the occasional bear.


In the middle of this month, June 2023, eagle-eyed people captured the bear on film, as it waded in the sound next to restaurants and a road. Similar videos sparked a frenzy of people taking their phones out to record the energetic bear as it tromped through John B’s turf looking for territory and easy meals. OBX Life captured many of these moments on Facebook.


One black bear’s swim in the Outer Banks was documented through photos, paddling through crashing waves before deciding it was easier to move around on the shore. 


This isn’t the first time a black bear has made its way to the outer banks. In 2020, a warning was issued by the National Park Service regarding the presence of a black bear indicated by the discovery of large footprints in the sand. Campers were advised to dispose of food waste properly to not attract the visiting animal. 

Fortunately, black bears do not have permanent residency in the Outer Banks, usually leaving once they realize the difficulty of finding fresh water. Tourists can be assured that although this happens sometimes, it is not enough to cause alarm. If one is to come across these beach-loving creatures, it is advised to keep one’s distance and to not do anything to get the animal’s attention.
