WADSWORTH, Ohio – The Wadsworth Police Department reported that a black bear was sighted in the city on Friday, according to a Facebook post.
The bear was spotted in the Silvercreek/Meadowcreek neighborhood during the morning hours.
Police reminded residents to “do not approach the bear or attempt to feed the bear,” and to keep a safe distance from the animal. In addition, police ask adults to keep an eye on small children or pets playing outside.
