'Round the Corner

ROANOKE, Va. -- A 300-pound, male, black bear walks through the halls of Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital around 9:10 p.m. People in the background have not seen the bear at the time of this picture. Officers planned to sedate the bear, but they were worried what might happen if the bear got loose in the hospital. So an officer shot and killed the bear.
