The bear that's been making its way through Streetsboro has apparently migrated a few miles west.
That's what Hudson police are telling us, saying there have been reports of the same bear roaming around American Fireworks on Darrow Road, then moving back in the Hudson-Aurora Road & Glen Echo Drive areas.
It's nothing new in Hudson. Police say they've had quite a few bear sightings over the last few years.
This bear sounds typical of the black bears that do wander into neighborhoods from time to time in northeast Ohio because it has not been aggressive. Still, police are reminding people to stay away if you see it.
Hudson Police have received reports of a bear spotted in the vicinity of American Fireworks on Darrow Road. It is now traveling east on Hudson Aurora Road and is on Glen Echo. This is the same bear that was seen in Streetsboro yesterday. Over the past few years, we have had a number of bear sightings in Hudson during the spring and summer months. They generally are not aggressive, and are just traveling through the area. Police are warning the public to not approach a bear if you see one, and to stay inside. Also, do not let small pets or children outside alone until the bear has left the area.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources has been notified of the sighting. Male bears tend to wander more often between the months of May and August looking to claim new territory and search for mates. To avoid attracting bears, food and trash inside until pickup day. Clean up grills after use and putting bird and other animal feeders up higher.
