A North Carolina woman said a bear stopped her from getting her package in time.
A North Carolina woman was expecting to find a package on her door last week, but instead, she found an unusual note from a UPS driver in her mailbox.
The driver left Marcy Lanier a failed delivery notice, which explains that a “bear in the driveway” prevented him or her from leaving the package. Lanier couldn’t help but laugh while reading the message.
In fact, the Asheville resident found the situation so hilarious, they decided to share with friends on Facebook.

“As I said. Only in Asheville!” Lanier wrote, posting a photo of the slip.
The photo went viral, garnering more than 2,200 shares since it was posted early Friday. Dozens of locals commenting on the photo, sharing jokes, and a word of advice for drivers in the area.
“Bear”, a Facebook user joked.
“I would have wrestled that bear and delivered the package,” a man claimed.
“It sounds like what would happen in my house!” another added.

Lanier said her mailbox is located at the entrance of her driveway and it is likely the bear stood in the middle of the driveway, blocking the front door.
“We get bears all the time,” Lanier told WLOS. “There was a bear on the driveway, so he could not drop off on my porch. He normally drops my packages on my porch. So that is how it happened. He could safely in his truck on the road.”
The black bear is the only species of bear living in North Carolina.
“Today, black bears are found approximately 60% of the total area of North Carolina,” according to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
