Bears are surprise visitors in metro area

At least three bears have been spotted in fairly populated sections of Erie County in the last two weeks.

One was struck by a vehicle and killed on the night of May 15, on the Aurora Expressway in the Town of Aurora.

Another was spotted multiple times last week and over the weekend, in Clarence and several Niagara County locations.

The third was struck and killed on the Niagara Thruway late Tuesday night, about three miles from the heart of downtown. That same bear apparently had been spotted in Cheektowaga early Monday.

Anyone seen any more bears in recent weeks, especially in the more populated areas?
