It was understandable.
Parcel workers usually leave generic notes when they are unable to deliver a package, but this week in North Carolina, a UPS driver encountered quite a unique circumstance.
Marcy Lanier told Fox News she laughed when she read the driver’s note as to why they did not leave her package.
"Bear in driveway," Lanier said the note read.
She decided to post a photo of the message on her Facebook page. It has since been shared more than 3,000 times.
"Like I say. Only in Asheville!" Lanier wrote in a caption for the photo.
Black bears are reportedly found on 60 percent of land in the state, according to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
"We get bears all the time," Lanier told WLOS. "So there was a bear in the driveway, so he couldn’t drop it off on my front porch. He normally drops my packages on my front porch. So that’s how it happened. He could stay safe in his truck, on the road."
