OSHKOSH, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Something you don't see everyday in Oshkosh! 

A resident spotted some black bears hanging out in a tree in a cemetery Thursday morning, Nov. 5. 

Around 5 a.m., Nicholas Genal snapped photos of what he believes was a mother and her two cubs at Ellenwood Cemetery on Washburn Street.
