RYE BROOK–Did you hear that a black bear was spotted in Rye Brook last week?
Rye Brook police are advising residents to be on the lookout after a black bear was spotted near the Connecticut border Tuesday evening.
They don’t know if it’s the same bear that was reportedly tranquilized in Greenwich, Conn. recently.
The Rye Brook sighting was on North Ridge Street near King Street and the Hutchinson River Parkway.
“The animals generally encounter humans while looking for food, often at bird feeders, garbage areas at restaurants and campsites,” according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
