Alright, I have seen it all now. I was driving home on Route 7 from Sterling to Ashburn, Virginia and stopped at a stoplight near the George Washington University Campus in Ashburn. I noticed the car in front of me looking to their left and pointing so I looked over. There was a small bear about 3' tall on the side of the road that looked like it was going to cross the road. Luckily it didn't because cars were coming the other direction. Instead, it turned around and crawled through the fence and into the woods like a small child. I couldn't believe it. I have seen a lot of things on Route 7 like deer, fox and other small animals but never ever a bear. I have even been to Yellowstone Park and never saw a real bear. I called the police because I wasn't sure what to do and told them I was on Route 7 traveling from Sterling to Ashburn and they interrupted me and said "are you calling about the bear?" Apparently, a lot of people had called them. Then, I proceeded to call my husband and anyone else I could think of to tell them about my bear sighting. People are still amazed when I tell them because most people have never seen a real bear and certainly not in Ashburn, Virginia.
