A black bear ran through Tuscora park in New Phila. yesterday about 2pm. There's a story in the Times-reporter but i don't know how to post the link. A cop that was following it has some video of it from the car cam. He thought he could corner it when it got to an eight foot fence but the bear went over that with no problem. What was he going to do if he did corner it is my question? It was spotted the day before eating from a bird feeder so they are saying to remove feeders and trash cans.Used to seeing deer in town but now bears,may be able to hunt in my back yard before long.

We have several of them up here in Trumbull County. I work with a guy from Steubenville in Jefferson County and they had sightings down his way last week as well.

On the news the other morning they showed pics that a lady took of a fairly sizeable black bear in her backyard, pics were from down around Piketon I think.

There were more reports of it sighted at the North end of Dover and the rest area on 77 Saturday. The Highway Patrol had a plane in the area but they didn't see it.

I live on the north end of Dover and I was outside yesterday morning/afternoon and saw the plane making circles...and was wondering if they might be looking for something...

I was tubing on Friday in a small pond in my hometown county of Mercer, Pa. (right on the Penn-Ohio border near Youngstown) and a small bear came to the shore about 100 feet from me. I was so into watching him that I forgot I had a camera packed away in the tube! It was one of those moments where it took my mind a couple of seconds to register what I was actually seeing.
