Bear found roaming Erie neighborhood

Local News

An Erie resident got an unexpected visitor Thursday morning.

Outside a home in the 2600 block of Maple Street was a black bear cub roaming a yard Thursday.

Janet Damico, a resident of the home, was able to grab her camera and take a couple of images of the bear before it scooted away.

Erie police were searching the neighborhood for the animal but were unable to find it.

“He was just kind of looking around, he was just scouting out the neighborhood, then he ran down the driveway and went into the neighbor’s backyard,” Damico said.

Millcreek police received calls early Thursday morning reporting a bear spotting. 

Police believe it’s the same bear.
