EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WGGB) — Police are keeping an eye out for a small black bear that was seen running through Easthampton on Wednesday.

Easthampton Police say that the bear was first spotted around 8 a.m. Wednesday and had been tracking ever since. It was seen at times, going through highly residential areas, including areas of Pleasant Street and Union Street.

At one point, officers were seen atop a nearby building to see if the bear was under some brush.

Around 3 p.m., the search was called off, but police say they are keeping an eye in case it surfaces again.

Mass. Environmental Police were also on-scene assisting.
