The Beacon Police Department has received several calls reporting a black bear in the area of Wilson Street. and Liberty Street.

Anyone who may see the bear, should stay clear of the animal and refrain from approaching it to take photographs and keep pets inside.

While black bears are omnivores and largely consume grasses, berries, fruit and insects, they will also eat human food, including bird seed, honey, and corn.
