(CONNECT-BRIDGEPORT.COM) There’s been another bear sighting in town.
Connect-Bridgeport.com is reporting that Terri Kress was driving on Brushy Fork Road, heading toward Bridgeport, when she spotted a black bear not once, but twice.
“It was in the middle of the road when I drove just past South Hills and down the road about a mile, I saw it run up into the woods,” she said.
The second sighting was just across from the Hinkle Lake dam. It is believed to be the same bear.
At the time of the first sighting, Captain Roy Cool with West Virginia Department of Resources said that a black bear wandering through highly populated part of Bridgeport and near heavy commercial areas is not groundbreaking for the area or others like it throughout the state. 
He also said that what generally happens is that after two years, a mother bear will run her cubs off and a young male bear cub can be seen wandering until he finds his own home area. Click here to read the full report.
