FALCONER – A black bear was spotted near the Village of Falconer on Friday afternoon.
WNY News Now viewer Kelly Perry shared video of the bear in the area of Gerry Levant Road and Route 394 around 1:30 p.m.
The bear, Perry says, was spotted running through residential back yards as she tried to warn those nearby of the discovery.
“The guy in the red truck and I stopped to warn them,” wrote Perry in a message to our newsroom. “There were a bunch of kids out front having a yard sale. Scary!”
This is not the first time in recent weeks a black bear was spotted in the Jamestown area. Last month, residents reported seeing a similar bear traveling just outside the Village of Falconer as well.
