Black bear spotted in Chili
Chili, N.Y. - A black bear was spotted in Chili Center Friday morning, walking through a neighborhood.
Viewer Dave Sessions sent us the photo above from his house on Tarrytown Drive.
He says he's lived in the area for more than five decades, but has never seen a bear in Chili Center.
Sessions said, "It was a real small bear. It was just kind of walking around, it wasn't in a hurry, didn't look like he was looking for food. He was just kind of walking around. He wasn't really menacing or anything."
He added that he took the picture from inside his home, because he was "not going outside."
Monroe County Sheriffs deputies and the Department of Environmental Conservation are searching for the bear.
