Black Bear Spotted in Reed City

People in a northern Michigan neighborhood say a black bear is wandering around town.

Police say there were three separate sightings in Reed City over the past four days.

An officer spotted a young bear walking along the Pere Marquette Trail and tracked it through town around 9:00p.m. Wednesday night. Some people who live in the area saw the bear going through the trash looking for food. Police think the bear may be living in the woods near the middle school.

The D.N.R. is hoping to catch and re-locate the bear to a more remote area.

9 and 10's Kyle Mitchell and photojournalist Jacob Johnson have more on the search.
