BROWNSVILLE, Pa. —
A black bear has been spotted by several people roaming around Brownsville Monday and Tuesday.
Channel 11’s Cara Sapida spoke to one woman who was able to snap a few photographs of the large black bear.
Bonnie Filby said she was sitting on her front porch right off Route 40 when the animal walked past her. She said the bear was spotted around 1:30 p.m. Monday.
“The bear came up there and looked like he was looking for something,” Filby said. “It ended up standing up on his back legs. It was beautiful. I wish I could have pet it.”
Another man reported seeing the bear outside a nearby Dairy Queen.
The Brownsville Police Department said it received so many phone calls about the bear, it issued a press release regarding the bear.
Officials warned residents not to feed the animal and to keep their pets and garbage inside to avoid attracting the bear.
