Families "hunting" for teddy bears in Blount County

BLOUNT COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) Some Blount county families are going hunting, but not for deers or turkeys, for teddy bears around town.

Sally Milton posted the idea in the Maryville Speaks Out Facebook group over the weekend.

Since then more than 100 people have commented and posted their stuffed animals on the porch or in the window. Their hopeful young children will be able to ride by and spot them.

Her goal is to help pass the time and give parents something to do with their kids while social distancing. She thinks a car ride "hunting" could bring a little joy to kids while we all can’t do much outside of the home.

"Let’s make this big," she wrote.
