POLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Those driving through Poland should remain alert. WKBN received information about a bear sighting in the area.
A road department worker spotted a black bear around 9 a.m. Tuesday running between houses on Lee Run Road, near Ridgeview Lane.
Ray Beatty said the bear wasn’t a large one, but he still wouldn’t want to get too close.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources recommends that if you see a bear, stay away and call police. ODNR says to remove any bird feeders and trash cans from the area. It’s also a good idea to take small pets inside.
