Black bear spotted in Wadsworth yard

WADSWORTH, Ohio - It's bear season.

Wadsworth police said a black bear was spotted in the Briarthorn Development, which is not uncommon in Ohio.

Police believe this particular bear migrated from Pennsylvania.

Officials said bears are not naturally aggressive, but that doesn't mean you should run up and give the furry guy a hug. If spotted, do not approach and keep your distance.
