Okay, so I live right next to Martin Rd. and the woods the bear retreated into is at the end of my street, so we're doing a lot of looking out the windows on a "bear watch". Jesi, it's not the bear from Canada(he couldn't get here due to the bridge tie-ups), anyway, that bear was caught and returned. This is a fresh, new bear. What everyone here wants to know is, how in the world did a bear end up in Lackawanna? I know the deer are making strides, but this is a new one.

Personally, I feel that the bear deserves to be free. I hope they never find it and it gets to live a long, free life!

Oh please, don't kid yourself, it's a stupid bear.

I hope they capture it soon (dead OR alive) so it doesn't pose a threat to us humans!

If they do capture it alive though, I hope they send it to a circus.

Bears are so cute unless they are eating you! I saw the bear displays at the Erie County Fair. They were so cute and playful with their handlers, I wish I could have kissed them on their lips!

Is the loose bear a wild bear or another escapee?

Oh yea, and for those who are scared of the obvious black bear...black bears will run from any human over ninty percent of the time. Usual attacks by black bears come from people stumbling upon sows (thats the girl bears) with cubs. This sounds like a young male probably roaming for food. Not much to worry about, but don't try to pet it..wouldn't be a good idea.
