Bear spotted in Cortland

Bear sighting in Cortland

CORTLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – A Newton Falls man spotted something out of the corner of his eye while driving down the road and discovered a large black bear.

Jeremy Groff had just left the Wal-Mart in Cortland around 10 a.m. and was traveling along Route 5 when glanced off to the side and spotted the bear by the side of the road.

He snapped a picture and sent it in through our Report It tab.

The bear was close to the tree line when he first caught a glimpse of it, but then started moving closer to traffic.
