Roaming Bear Takes Nap Near Miss Porter's School in Farmington

A bear took a nap in some ivy near Miss Porter’s School in Farmington Monday. 

The bear laid down in a front yard on Main Street and stayed there for a while, only lifting its head, until it left the area. 

Officials from the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection said state EnCon Police responded to a report of a bear roaming near the school and they were later able to chase it into a more suitable wooded area.
