A black bear on an unwelcome weekend visit to a Simpsonville neighborhood was evicted from his perch Saturday morning by city Police, Firefighters and state Department of Natural Resources personnel.  The ursine urbanite was spotted shortly after daybreak in a tree near a home on Hedge Street.  DNR agents say the bear was "removed to a safe area."
