We spoke with one of the heirs of the Thistlethwaite State Wildlife Management Area who assists in management of the land and he said that a bear had been spotted on a camera in this very area in years past.

While bear sightings have become a common occurrence in the Acadiana area, it is still quite the surprising sight to see such an animal running across a roadway.
