Don’t be surprised if a sighting that occurred recently in Oxford, Ala., becomes more commonplace. A young, male black bear strolled through several neighborhoods in the Oxford area and created somewhat of a stir.
Registration for Alabama's alligator hunts begins June 3 at 8 a.m. and ends July 12 at 8 a.m. CDT.

Hunters are allowed to register one time per zone, and the cost to apply per zone is $22.
