A black bear was spotted wandering through backyards in Brecksville Tuesday night, and it seems to be a little hungry.

Officers said the bear bent a fence to get into a beehive within the fenced area.

Police said the bear was spotted in the 9000 block of Highland Road, east of I-77 and south of State Route 82, not far from the Brecksville Reservation Metropark. The area has deep wooded lots.

The animal warden was out checking the area with officers, and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources will be contacted, according to police.
